Faux Patchwork


Connie sent me this lovely faux patchwork fabric so I collaged it with other fabric, scrim and lace, added a gel transfer picture and pearls ,roses and a lace butterfly, it certainly got me away from the Autumn colours and all fits well together. I'm having a day out at the Crafts4crafters show at Newark tomorrow,hoping not to spend too much as Ally Pally is coming up at the end of the month - why am I going - because i can I suppose, then it'll be home to hospital visiting in the evening.

Gel transfer?? Now THAT"S something new!! A local girl here cut up a leather jacket and made a purse and did "gel transfer" to get images on it........ hmmm. Maybe you should plan a trip over here to show me how to do this! Howz the soldering going? Did you go any further with that? This is inspiring me to unwrap my sewing machine and figure out how to use it!
