Layers of thread...
Machine Embroidery...varied thickness threads
Recreating layering with free motion embroidery
Inspired further by Leslie Shows gorgeous layering effect I have been experimenting with my beloved free-motion embroidery. Using varied threads to create extra texture and depth. I love the mix of the neutral pastels with the strong black contrast. I am also experimenting with new types of stabilisers, this one is burn off muslin which I haven't tried before. I have lots of ideas about how to incorporate this into both a garment and scarves...lots of experimentation to do first though!
