Our next Pandoras meeting is going to be at Susan Brubaker-Knapp’s house. The host chooses the project we will be doing that day. Susan has chosen a really cool project for us to do. We’ve each purchased the book “Stitch Alchemy” by Kelli Perkins http://kelliperkins.blogspot.com/ and will be following her directions for making paper cloth.
We are wanting to make a specific project from her book which will require making the paper-cloth, embellishing it, and then cutting and sewing it into a finished item. We cannot get all that done in one day, and we didn’t want to commit two Pandoras meetings to this one project so…… we each are to make a few sheets of paper-cloth ahead of time so it will be dry and ready for the next step when we get together next week.
Here is what I did Monday morning:
These are strips of scrapbook paper, tissue paper, a few sheets torn from an old Atlas and an old hymnal (I feel a little sacrilegious!)
And my piece of muslin.
And my paper-cloth ready to be set aside to dry.
I’ll add pictures next week when I get together with the Pandoras and paint and stamp and cut and sew…..
