Fabric 4, originally uploaded by KittyStitch.

Fabric rags and specialist yarn coiled and stitched on to soluble fabric with assorted embroidery stitches. This was a bit of an experiment. I was itching to use some of the yarns that I bought when I visited Colinette’s factory shop in May. I combined a few bits with some of my fabric scraps in this sample. I decided to coil the yarn and then stitch it down by machine. I then realised that I needed to apply a lot more stitching – machine and hand – otherwise I would end up with an unravelled yarn and rag mess when it comes to dissolving the soluble backing.
