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.
