The lady with the tambourine
Now I finished the piece with the embellisher. It showed the possibilities I was waiting for as I bought it. It is made for me and my technique. It would have spared me much work with my earlier pieces...
I did some hand and machine stitching on the piece and embellished it with beads. It is so nice to sew on this material. I was looking for this feeling as I began to do transparent pieces because I didn't like the difficulty of quilting through all the fabric layers. I also wanted the pieces to look light when on the wall because I think quilts are made for covering and not for hanging.
In my past work I had to use bonding material and this made the pieces thicker and it wasn't so good for stitching through the glue.
