Yesterday at the Guild our Creative Embroidery group had a session on fabric Manipulation using pleats -tucks-crinkling and a lot of other things as well.
I decided to do crinkling (even though I had done it before) because I was too lazy to do all the measuring and stitching involved with the other techniques.
I had a lovely piece of hand dyed silk that I had purchased from the Thread Studio years ago
that was from Colourstreams-the colour is Marakesh but I don't think this is available anymore.
I have silk threads and silk ribbon in the same colourway and these are still available.
The technique was from a book called Texture with Textiles by Linda F McGhee.
I'm not sure what I will use it for but it will have stitching on it.
Don't you just love those colours.
