January/February 2014 Challenge: Make Your Own Fabric

The challenge, courtesy of Brenda, was to make our own textile. As always, our interpretations were wide ranging.

Sue B. 

Sue used a "Stack 'n' Whack" technique to make this lovely pillow.


Kathy stitched bias strips in a lattice pattern for this vest. Can you tell its actually two different fabrics?

She also gets extra credit for experimenting with solvable stabilizer, making this sample and a fabric bowl:


Brenda made the textile for the lower section of this bag from various fabric scraps. I wonder what she keeps in all those bags she makes!


Carol, the knitter, crocheted this lovely Boteh scarf:


Cynthia pieced together two different fabrics and inserted a yarn to create this scarf:


I did bobbin work, applique and free motion embroidery to create this skirt.


Marge's finished project for the January/February challenge:

The three sections of fabric that look like tweed or textured upholstery fabric
were made by repeatedly stitching blended color threads over a cotton base.
