After playing with scrim, it was now time to play with silk paper.
It was fun trying out the different stitches on the paper, and to see how resilient it is.
This was a sheet, just testing out the different stitches I have on my machine
I like the edging this makes, just over stitching in circles backwards and forwards along a line, then pulling the excess paper away.
This was just to see how much I could stitch on the paper before it began to disintigrate. The paper didn't tear, but it did stretch. I think that a piece like this would be great for further hand embellishment
Stitching over a hole
Pin tucks and concertinas, again waiting for hand embellishment
Circles, and experimenting with holes
This stitch would be great for an edge, one of my favourites.
Now I'm looking forward to combining the scrim and paper with other fabric and hand stitching. Hopefully. a few more stitched samples will follow.
