This month’s Stitch Along theme is "Every one is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody” – Mark Twain
This is a new technique for me, fabric collage.
It was inspired by @sheepBlue 's hangings at Ticker Tape Quilts - One scrap at a time and by an apron* I saw in my travels this summer, and by the huge bag of scrap fabric taking up so much space in my studio.
I did the background, moon, figure, and wings as separate pieces held together with fusible web, then stitched. Then I assembled the pieces with more fusible web and stitching. AND ADDED SOME HAND EMBROIDERY.
I learned about the importance of contrast…some parts disappear more than intended, while others are more obvious than expected.
*I really liked that apron, but it was $50, and I could make it myself, and it was made of scraps… Now I really have to make myself an apron.
