This month was a follow on session for machine embroidery. There were some bowls created after last month’s tutorial.


 

And the concept taken a little further and made into jelly fish, a great interpretation for our theme From the Sea.

Twining Away

Making twine was the focus for the September meeting. This is a super easy thing to and very easily done in front of the television. Carol demonstrated the technique using fabric strips and Kerrie followed on with paper twine. There are many uses for the twine, wrapping cords, pots, baskets, mats and weaving.

These are pots that Kerrie made using the technique. The first is made with dressmaking pattern/tissue paper, the second with silk and the third with calico. The twine is coiled and then each coil stitched to hold it in place.

Fabric strips, two different widths made into twine and below yarn twisted into twine.

Strips of dressmaking tissue twisted into twine. Kerrie likes to wrap the finished twine around some cardboard to keep it neat and stop ant tangles.

Strips of newspaper can also be twisted, however, may make your hands a bit dirty.

This is a little incentive, Carol has finished her concertina book ready for the exhibition in March 2017
And a couple of detail photographs
