What if #3 - Was wäre wenn 3








This was a try on making a kind of 3D surface working flat. I noticed that if you work around a center the surface tends to curl. I will use it for a new piece. At the moment it looks more like a frog.

Dieses war ein Versuch, eine 3D Form zu erzeugen. Ich merkte, dass - wenn man in Runden arbeitet -die Fläche nachgibt und wird zu einem Hut. Ich werde dieses Stück für mein neues Werk verwenden. Momentan sieht es aus wie ein Frosch.

No, it is a beautiful South Sea atoll, just needs a palm tree.

Hi Sara,

Lovely 3D felting. Wonder what it's going to be?

Did you know that you can use the same technique to mould fabric with machine embroidery? By going around and around under the sewing machine with an ordinary straight stitch you can get the same effect. I just thought I would mention it in case you hadn't discovered this yet.
I was taught by Alice Kettle when I studied at Goldsmiths College in London and she taught me how to do this. Great Work Sara, Regards Tricia

sara, i have always noticed this happening when i hand quilt in circles, i get a cone and often stitch it down. i am thinking now that maybe i should try leaving it. love the 3d effect.

immer wieder schön, wenn der Zufall mitwirkt und etwas tolles ungeplantes entsteht. Ich finde die 3-D Form auch ein gelungenes Ergebnis und die Farben sind herrlich!

Your work is just beautiful, I love your pieces.
I went to the open day at Fibreforum Geelong on Saturday and one of the pieces was heavily machine stitched in circles to form little concave bits, the tutor (Pauline from Fibrefusion) called it 'nipple' fabric. It was very effective.

Hi I found yu through JUde's what if blog. I think this looks like a hat, and a very pretty hat at that.

The colors blend together wonderfully, looks like an island with the deep blue sea around it. Lovely!

I have just been enjoying some of your work on your other blog and am not even halfway through yet, but just had to say how delightful your pieces are. I love them and the colours are glorious. They are dreamlike and so beautiful. When do you have time to eat and sleep? Your studio, shop and living space are just as beautiful too. I would love to be able to do work like that, or even to design it.
