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.

  1. Iove the finished product! I did not realize you also had an online store. If you collect fabrics, I will save mine for you. I sew from time to time and never know what to do with the remnants or scraps.
