A few years ago, I started making this bag for a friend but decided to make a journal cover for her instead. I came across the machine-embroidered front a few days ago and decided to finish making it up.
I attached the red poppy with fusible webbing and then machine stitched over it, using a free motion zigzig for the centre. I drew the other poppies with a marking pen before stitching them.
I am exploring ways to alter fabric and to produce individual pieces of a high quality. I am currently experimenting with mixed media and I also enjoy working with more familiar materials and techniques. I hope to eventually develop my own style - my own visual language.
