Barbie was playing ... oops ... being creative with fabric earlier this week and I thought to myself, let's keep the fabric thing going ...
I've played with a little organza, a little satin, a little more organza, a little tulle and some other silky fabric - no idea what it is called though - sorry.
I've cut lots of thin strips --- nothing to that ... easy peasy!
I've then folded them over and twisted them a little and popped a stitch in underneath and then through the layers.
I haven't quite finished this one - but you can see where I am going with it [excuse the dodgy looking piece of fabric it is sitting on].
I've still got the bottom layers to go where I will have circles layered on top of each and then the strip cluster on top of them. The layers will look similar to the bottom flower brooch which I have made ... but this one gives you some idea of how it looks as a work in progress ...
We have lots of layers on this one - once I've cut out all my circles I have run the edges through a burning candle to get them to curl ... Once I've layered them all together and put a stitch through the layers, I've actually put a safety pin underneath and had my wee creation pinned to a scarf which I wore to work ... loved the way this little treasure turned out.
This one received quite a few comments from work colleagues today.
Just another way of being creative ... scrap it, pop it on a card or wear it ...
All in the name of creativity.
