I've had a self-imposed deadline of the end of summer for many projects and they are not done. So, I've been trying harder. The result - finished pieces?
No, the result is sore wrists so I stopped stitching last week and won't be stitching again for a few more days.
So, I've had to find other ways to amuse myself. I'm machine quilting and I tried fusing plastic bags. There are many tutorials in books and on the web and I have no shortage of plastic bags so I thought I'd try.
At first the iron was too hot and the result had holes and was distorted and bumpy. Still, I like the result.
Ghostly echos of familiar logos show through the fused plastic.
As I adjusted the iron temperature each attempt made better and better "fabric".
I'm thinking of making bags. Or book covers.
This one was a gigantic clear pillow-case bag with some cut up bread bags inside.
Interesting results and some interesting "fabric" to play with.
Hopefully I'll be back to stitching soon.
