Embroidery from air vent design

embroidery using design

I was playing round with my then new machine here. You can’t see it in the photo but the background is sewn with a decorative stitch. I used the stencil in the previous photo to paint on to nappy liner and then ironed it on to the fabric. I outlined the shapes with metallic thread.

I cut out a stencil of the airvent on to white card. I used it to stencil white Markal on to black fabric (or was it paint…. can’t remember now!) – that is the one on the left here. I then stuck it on to black card – that’s bottom right. The bits I cut out I stuck on to white card – that’s the top one.

This is a print I took using a mixture of black poster paint and PVA glue, of the airvent. I was caught by my next door neighbour making this print… I think it just confirmed my madness!!


Stencil from floor tiles!

And another… I made the stencil on the left and played with the airbrush at college to stencil on to dyed fabric. The background is more computer printout…

On the left is a photo of our actual floor tiles and in the middle is something I did playing with fabric to represent one of the motifs. The background was done in MS Paint and made into a repeating design.
