I received an intriguing assortment of fiber goodness to play with!
- Silk, Silk Linen, Linen Silk Blend fabrics (approximately a fat eighth of each)
- Shape-flex – all purpose woven fusible interfacing.
- Bamboo Batting
- Fusible Web
- Spunbond - a strong, water resistant interfacing. It offers interesting effects when painted.
- Silk Cocoons
- Silk Roving – this can be felted, spun, painted etc.
- Silk Rods
First, I painted the silk fabrics with Setacolor paints. Some of them enjoyed a little sun printing. The Linen-Silk blend was my favorite. I used a cool floral or sunburst stencil and some tiny flower petals. I used three colors of paint in buttercup, vermilion, and cardinal red.
