Wednesday brings another installment of WIPs With Friends.
I took a Fiber Works class with my SIL on Monday night.
If you don't know the patterns go here and check them out. I
t is a pretty cool collage technique.
Patterns are by Laura Heine.
I, of course, chose the cat. My SIL chose the sea horse.
I wanted to make my cat look like an orange tabby (Jack) and she was going for the pattern look.
We just learned how to transfer the pattern on to pattern eze and then do the base fabrics to form the animal we were making.
Once the base is in place you fuse it to the pattern eze and cut it out.
Then you attach it to the background you chose for your piece.
The magic happens when you fuse flowers and stuff on top of the colorful base.
Here is my cat, Jack so far.
This is just the base.
I re-did the nose like 6 times! I ended up using the tiger's nose from Tula Pink's Eden line.
It was purrfect!
I also wanted the eyes to stand out more so I fused them on to a bit of black.
I love how they turned out!
This is the seahorse base my SIL did.
She and I did our own shop hop and acquired all of these fabrics to use for this project
So far I think we are doing a great job with them.
Our next class is November 4, so there won't be much more to share with these until then.
I linked up with Sew Fresh Quilts
