postcard from the fibers studio

Here is a closeup of the hand-sewn applique and reverse applique sample I was working on for my Surface Design II class.

It is currently being graded. I'll post a picture when I get it back, but I can tell you that it's about 13.5" square, and features fabrics I dyed and block printed by hand using fiber-reactive dyes. As it turns out, I quite enjoy reverse applique, particularly curvilinear shapes, which turn under so easily.
