Arty Alphabet 6-9
Continuing - Arty Alphabet in response to the Instagram Challenge 'Every Day Creative A to Z" #everydaycreativeatoz
F : Felt - Although I wouldn't classify myself as a "felter",I do like to make felt and this is a close up of one of my favourite scarves.
G : Grevillea Girl - one of series of small whimsical watercolours commissioned as gifts. Inspired by the bush folk by May Gibbs.
H: Hexagons - these small fabric hexagons were stitched together and then appliqued on to a recycled piece from an old tablecloth. The bees are made of tea bag paper and also stitched onto the fabric.This photo is of a section from one of a series of concertina fabric books, entitles "Garden Stories"
I : Indigo . This is a piece of raw silk dyed with indigo. The whole piece used shibori techniques, so each section of the piece shows the results of a different way of manipulating the fabric before dyeing.
Hoping to make it to the end of the alphabet....
