All other projects were dropped this week as I became obsessed with layering and playing with contrasting materials, and these little babies are the result. They're basically just paper and felt with machine and hand stitching. What I love about them, though, is the contrast in textures. The paper is a bin-find from an architect's office - super high quality archival tracing paper that won't yellow or go brittle with age. It has this incredibly smooth almost plastic texture and was gorgeous to sew because it didn't split. The felt is so furry in comparison and softens the hard-edge feel I think. The big challenge for me, though, was just letting spontaneous shapes emerge. I actually concentrated on not planning them... (but yeah, I know, they still look anal-retentive!) Anyway, I don't care - I had fun! Hope you like them :) More Creative Spaces can be found at Kirsty's here.
Oh, and this gorgeous linen I bought from Thea here (I do plan to actually make something with it, Thea, but it's such a lovely background too, I couldn't resist!)
