The Fiber Junkies spend spring - fall months playing with fabric dyes and paints which yields A LOT of fabric. My preference of working with felted wool can over shadow other fun fabrics.
Yet, my eye seems to meet this small cotton piece every time I glance towards my painted/dyed fabric stash. (7th railing on the right.) The question was....what the heck do I do with it?
One problem was the flaw smack dab in the middle of the length of fabric which was required removing a narrow section. yes, I could have covered it up....but...
Instead, I decided to incorporate some polka-dot scraps.
Here's one layout idea. The very top section is the strip cut from the whole-cloth....adding 1 patch to achieve the required width. Actually, viewing the photo now as I pen this post....it isn't too bad..... Yet, during auditioning various layouts, I chose not to go this route.
My blogging format preference is to share some step-by-steps followed by the finished piece. Because my plan calls for a lot of hand stitching....that won't happen for awhile. Stay tuned....
