So here are my exquisite corpses. First a close-up of the face on one painted over glued patches of fabric. I had a lot of trouble at first with the free motion quilting attachment and finally broke it trying to figure out how to make it work. The terrific people where I got it allowed me to trade it in for one that worked better on my machine. (Thank you Montavilla Sewing Center.)
This is what the attachment looks like. There are many different kinds. The one I broke cost $29 while this replacement only cost $9. It works great.
This is the entire hanging. My stitching is not well controlled yet but I'm improving.
This is a detail of the 2nd one.
And the entire piece. Painted on lightweight canvas. I love painting "skins"; what I call unstretched canvas or fabric. And now adding stitching is a 2nd way to play around. My friends have all done this a lot but it is a new one for me - now let's see what else I can sew on!
