As its only a level one course the work isn't too heavy and its the first year the Embroiderers Guild in Norwich have run it but hope they will do the follow on one next year.
Just thought I would show some of the prep work I did on shells and the finished item.
I made some stamps out of funky foam and used those to print.
I used bleach on a stamp and discharged dye from black fabric. The other stamps were stitched around in different ways.
For my piece I decided to make a purse in cream and pink as these are the colours in many shells. The purse is in silk dupion with silk velvet shells attached using applique.
Although I'm not really into quilting I thought it would look apt to have a quilted purse with wavy lines to represent the sea.
