october 1

these little things are three dimensional. each panel is about 3.5 x 5". they are in various stages of completion.










the one above is not finished. the reverse side needs work (so i'm not showing it to you yet.)

Hi, Laura -
Good to see you posting. These are fascinating little pieces - are you hand-stitching the edges with a buttonhole stitch? That's what it looks like... lovely work. Great idea!

hi Pat, thanks for the note! I am so erratic with posting that i wouldn't be surprised if noone ever read!
the edges are all machine stitched - exterior edges are done with a buttonhole stitch, interrior fold edges with a sort of ladder stitch, on the 9 mm setting. i am finding this a good format right now and actually seeing ideas develop for the first time in a long while.

Laura,
This is a fantastic idea!! what a wonderful way to show off the small fabric works,like post cards. And what a great way to display something where it turns into a 3 dimensional piece. I Love this! I cant wait to see more and from both sides. The mind boggles,You are amazing! Are you going to try this on a bigger scale as well?
