I've decided to do a series of small pieces using my hand dyed fabric and various techniques, all incorporating hand stitch.
This piece is starting with a heart stencil designed by Margaret Applin.
Using a palette knife, I applied a nice thick coating of Pebeo Expandable Paint through the stencil. Be sure to keep the stencil firmly held onto the fabric so that you don't get any paint under it. I used a temporary spray adhesive to achieve this.
Let dry according to paint directions and then 'puff' using a heat gun.
I'll show you more once I get to the hand stitching. Have a great day!
