Project continued.

10x12 inches.

I honestly don't know where the idea for this project came from, I suppose it brought together my current interest in drawing, doodling and trying out more block printing. I found it satisfying because I could  do a little at a time ,with the machine set up with black thread I could  draw onto the fabric when I felt in the mood. 
Use zentagel patterns as inspiration for free machining:

Here are a few more photos and the outcome as I decided to make the piece into an album which will probably be used to hold stitch samples. I made it up like a book cover and added some pieces of recycled card to stiffen the 'covers'. 

If I had thought it out a bit more I could have added some pockets to hold the samples; I could I suppose still  add these by hand stitching.
I hope you have a go and send me any links to your work.

    (I'm sorry to say I didn't get started myself yet ... my days are eaten away with other things .... )

  2. What a treasure you have made...yet again!!

  3. I'm so glad I read your blog today because I have tried and love doing zentangles !
    I also wondered about stitching them on fabric ? .... thank you for the inspiration !
    Now I have to allow time to just 'try' !
