Dale Rollerson the owner of The Thread Studio in Australia has asked me to provide a piece of work for her stand at the WA Craft Show in Perth in August. I’ve decided to do something new and as I know Dale loves mixed media I’ve been playing with Tyvek. I decided to machine stitch a design on the Tyvek with a backing of felt, painted it with diluted acrylic paint, when dry zapped it (carefully) with a heat gun.

As this is still work in progress I’ve still to add to it, not sure what yet ! As they say watch this space and I’ll show the finished piece shortly.
