Sewing Repub


9 Jan 2010


I have been making cloth and enjoying every minute of it! In a moment of, 'What if?' I created a freezer paper resist that reminds me of doilies and lace. I printed it on a green ground, where if you look closely you'll see rodeo arches, doors, dog houses and church steeples. It was a piece of cloth I'd dye printed years ago and slowly whittled away.

The broad open areas are calling to me. They make me want to paint a toile like scene in them, the scene would need to be irreverent like the green fabric itself.

Such a  beautiful lacey resist!  I can't wait to see what you paint inbetween.

A lot of interesting possibilities here!  

I've tried freezer paper a couple times and thought there must be so much more that could be created with it than what occurred to me.

Love your "lace", Melanie.
