By the Yard Extra

This was a very interesting show: 10 different artists with 10 varying visions of surface designed textiles.

The techniques were wide ranging - weaving, dyeing, machine and hand embroidery, image transfer, even stamping with the end of a branch!

I was really pleased with my final piece and loved how it looked on display.

I felt the need to create a little something "extra" - an "art to wear" vest made from the applique scraps!

I used an 1860's paletot pattern as my base, then block printed and embroidered and added a wild fringy collar.

The show ends tomorrow, but the vest lives on!
