Sample Project 2012 – February

I do wish you could see the amazing photos that are inspiring this project, from Underwater Eden – 365 Days, by Jeffrey L. Rotman. Call me old-fashioned, but it doesn’t seem right to scan and post someone else’s photos that haven’t been made available by them on the web. So my samples may not make a whole lot of sense – sorry! But I do recommend getting hold of the book if you can, it’s gorgeous – so tricky to choose only one in seven of the photos to work with.      




Week 5: Spider crab

Embellisher, yarn and Wensleydale curls.










Week 6: Giant kelp

Bonded applique, machine stitch with built-in pattern.









Week 7: Giant Pacific octopus

Background scrim and dyed wool tops Embellshed onto felt. Suckers - sheer fabric applied with satin stitch circles worked using Flower Stitcher, then cut back.








Week 8: Purple anthias against knotty gorgonian coral

Coral pattern free machined, fish automatic satin stitch.
