New skills


Posted by Picasa


Over the course of the year I have learned dyeing techniques, shibori, monoprinting, sundyeing, felt making by two different methods, foundation piecing, mile a minute quilt blocks, silk painting, fabric paper making, free machine embroidery (need much more practice), new embroidery stitches, fabric layering, embellishing with a needle-felting machine and some elements of design.

I have also learned to make wallhangings, bookwraps, bookcovers, a patchwork bag (!), a fabric paper box, dotee dolls, various pouches along with sundry ATCs and bookmarks etc.
