Midsummer night dream

Saving every piece of fabric, doesn't matter how small, results in making pieces like this.
There is an unpredictable element when I hand dye all these different pieces of fabric in the same dye bath. When the process is done,  I have all these variegated shades of one color.
I let the shapes of scraps lead me towards the final design. They manage to connect in perfect puzzle. I assemble them in layers, sewing and hand embroidering in between.
