2/03/11…Stitched Bowls

Once you have discovered water soluble fabric, so many possibilities open up. There are plenty on the market. Buy in small quantities to try out 1st as they can vary in thickness. I prefer my water soluble thick so I can work without a frame.

Stitch & Sculpt that bowl!

Bits of fabric, or some unfinished pieces of embroidery (hearts in bowl) can all be cut up and stitched into the work.

Some areas might be quite heavily stitched and others quite lacy. Ensure all stitchery overlaps so there are no unwanted holes! Once stitching is complete, wash most of water sol away, leaving enough of the glue so bowl retains its shape.

Press your stitched piece firmly into the inside or around the outside of a bowl. Dry with a hairdryer pressing firmly into place as you go…Happy stitching!
