What you can do with table napkins!

EXPERIMENTING…..once again!

I belong to a group whereby we are experimenting using different fibres other than fabric.  For six weeks we focus on different elements and each week we try something completely new.   This encourages me to use products I have never tried before!Now here is the result of my first week’s work.  

Using paper table napkins I machine stitched to form a background, then made a grid and rubbed this back to produce a distressed effect.   Pieces of napkin were then attached over the grid to produce the final image.  

Having never worked in this way before, I found it enchanting and  now more ideas are flowing.   

Watch this space for the next challenge!
