Yesterday, I felt like working on a piece using free motion stitching.
I had an old piece of fabric I got from an antique store, I think it might have been a curtain.
I wanted to add some more texture, so I used lace and another blue fiber.
Do you recognize the blue fiber I layered over the top of the whole piece and used for the little flowers?
The blue fiber is from those goofy looking surgery hats.
I took this photo of a co-worker at my job.
I don't usually wear this type of cap, because I like to make my own caps from different, fun fabrics.
When I change out of my scrubs at work, I will sometimes throw my socks into one of these caps to take home, so when I did laundry this weekend I started to throw the caps away, and took notice of the papery type fabric and thought it might be fun to sew on!
Here's a close up so you can see the thin, blue layer, then the small pieces I used to make the flowers.
Beginners work, but it was fun to be creative with something you were just going to throw out, and I think those goofy looking surgical caps look so much better like this than on my head, don't you?
Hope everyone has a great week, it's back to work for me tomorrow!
Hope you had a happy Monday Becca!
I noticed you have a heart in there and I love hearts.
Have a good day at work tomorrow!
So original and pretty-beauty in something you would normally overlook :)
Have a lovely day :)
have a beautiful and bright day
Just gorgeous. I love all of the beautiful textures, and you have photographed it so beautifully!
Very beautiful result.
I just love all the texture on this piece, I really need to get a free motion needle for my machine.
