Is anyone else losing track of the days, weeks, months?!
Here just one week late is Textile Tuesday
In The Stitchbook Collective we have been having fun with Tyvek.
Each month we get a pack of goodies to experiment with
It is always a wonderfully exciting moment to open the parcel to see what is inside
Colours I would not usually choose to work with, all carefully chosen and lovingly put together. The kits are still available if you go to the Untangled Threads website, and a pound from the sale of each kit goes to the mental health charity, Mind. So far Helen has raised and donated £2,489.50.
Tyvek is a synthetic fabric that reacts to heat
Creating great bobbly textures
This one was painted with a tester pot of Dulux emulsion before hitting it with the heat gun
Here is the piece of fabric collage I will put on a page in my stitchbook
Now onto the next parcel to open, which is all about felt.
