I have become enamored with interesting textiles and textures lately. Don't get my wrong, I LOVE batiks and cottons, but sometimes it's fun to do something really outside the box.
Two years ago I discovered Terial Magic which is a spray that makes fabric VERY stiff, like cardboard or paper. It's great for working with challenging fabrics.
Here's a peek at my new project, Peculiar Posies. I have been having fun with leather, taffeta, silk, velvet, all sorts of fun things.
Here you can see I've put some leathers through each other! And I found a leather with dots poked in it.
Here's my fun new flower that includes lots of interesting fabrics. Since I usually only use bits of fabric for applique, I have been cutting small pieces and then applying the Terial Magic. That way I don't saturate the entire fabric, just the small part I need. It saves in the cost of Terial Magic.
Here is a velvet flower I've created from four different colors of hand-dyed velvet. Such fun!
I hope you get to quilt today!
This is so beautiful and so creative! I can't wait to see more!ReplyDelete
I saw an online demo of the Terial Magic and was intrigued. I may have to get some and try it.ReplyDelete
Where do you find your fabrics, Suzy? SRHarris? You are really creative; it's so fun to see what you are up to. Can't wait to see this progress!ReplyDelete
Hi Suzy! I love Terial Magic. It works fabulously on t-shirt quilts, and if you want to feed fabric through your printer for appliquéd shapes/pieces. This looks SO cool! ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
This is awesome. I love textures and unusual fabrics, second hand shops are just the best! This makes me want to get out my Terial Magic and play!ReplyDelete
