Class Projects

I'm taking the Ratty Tatty Papers class from Dale of www.thethreadstudio.com and experimenting with lots of different types of paper. This is tissue paper that I cut up and sewed back together with a multiple zigzag. Tissue isn't as fragile as you would think.
Here the paper is on a felt background held down by decorative stitches and then torn out between the rows of stitches.

The leaf shapes are cut from napkins and sewn to another napkin. Now I'm looking at napkins in a whole different way.

Really like the outcome of tearing the paper between the stitches.
