I'm having fun with this hooky technique though the colours don't look as interesting as they are in reality, a late evening shot under a side table lamp light - must try for a daylight shot next.
Im going to have to practise a lot, no ALOT, if Im ever to achieve the even tension of Heathers work but then, I do like texture in my work!
And she does steam press her work finally, to meld it all together and that no doubt flattens her tension out too.
Forgot to say, Heather said never use your best dressmaking scissors to cut fleece fabrics, because it will blunt them, after all you are basically cutting plastic - well who knew!
She also suggested using the rotary cutter to cut out narrow and uniform fabric strips - so sensible and of course it never even occurred to me!! Mind you it seems to blunt back the old blade quite quickly and plays havoc then with the cutting mat surface!
But cutting the strips that way works just fine, so I wont be buying a fancy fabric cutter gadget, even though I do love natty gadgets lol
