Thread Art

What you will need

  • i used cotton materials and rayon threads
  • backings suggested in the class materials. I wondered what the "Girl with the peal earring" project would look like using the fabrics close to the colors in the original painting
  • so that's what I did. In doing so I had to applique fabrics to get the colors I wanted then I did the thread stitching. I always have had trouble following instructions. lololololll. I need more experience in shading
  • but will work on that some more. I haven't done the background stitching yet but will get to that. Don't know how I want to do that yet. Any suggestions? I had a great time doing this
  • will do another project soon. Thanks for the class
