Chapter 6 Bonding in Applique

I've been using these techniques for around thirty years and am equally familiar with Bondaweb and the  powder form adhesive. I decided to supplement the exercise by being as experimental as possible. I began by making up the same design in various fabric combinations to compare the different juxtapositions of  colour and texture.
Same design, different fabrics
I found it difficult to say which I liked best.... I love the twinkly quality of the organza in 1, which contrasts with the shine of the poly silk. I like the texture povided by the the brocade in 2 and the transparency and randomness of the spider net in 3!

  1. Oh thank you Amanda. You have just made me feel so much better by saying how long you have been doing all this for! Mind you would you believe me if i said that I first tried some of these techniques about 10 years, probably not! ;-)
