Layers of Tyvek layered with polyester organza, machine stitched together and then zapped with a heat gun.
This has been a very whizzy week, this will be a brief post. The Fibre Forum with Tafta Inc at Geelong is a hysterical, amazing and wonderful event. There are so many people involved, we have had an amazing time so far - we have even got some work done.
I am teaching a 5 version of Hot Textiles, this includes experimenting with painted Bondaweb/Vliesofix, Tyvek, Lutradur/CS800 and the heavier interfacings, S133 and Decovil 1 and Decovil 1 light.
Here are a range of corsages made from Tyvek. . .
This is how they start . .
. . . and how they finish, with a bit of TLC from an iron, baking parchment and a soldering iron.
And we layered 3 sheets of 75gm Tyvek with polyester organza, machine stitched together and then zapped back with a gun to create some fabulous textures.
and we made beads . . .
And now we are working on vessels . . .
These are my gorgeous girls - from the left, Cindy, Chrissy (hiding), Yvonne, Clare, Cathy, Jan, Marilyn, The Divine Helene, Ruby, Kim and in the front - Trisha.
Watch this space - MUCH more to come - have no idea when as I will be flying home on Saturday and driving up to Alexandra Palace for The Knitting Show next week . . AArrghhh!!!!
If you come to the show and come to the Freudenberg Vilene Stand number TGR3 and hear a strange snoring noise - it will be me - asleep under the table . . . be gentle with me.
Until next time . . .
