{Studio Update} New Drawings in Thread…

I’ve been busy playing around with making some more drawings with thread lately. After many attempts, here are my newest three – a rabbit, fox, & hedgehog. Do you have a favorite? I think I do, but I’m curious about yours. I will be printing some more tees with one of these right away, & have plans to make more letterpress prints & plush as well. I would love your input. For those that don’t know what I mean by drawing with thread, here is a little video demo of my process. There isn’t a drawing underneath, or a computer program that does this for me. It is all chance & a regular sewing machine with a quilter’s foot. Sometimes the drawing juju is with me… & sometimes it isn’t. Needless to say, many end up in the garbage. One of the things that I find interesting about this process is that it uses both parts of my brain. The right side is creating the drawing & the left side is making sure I don’t run over my fingers with the needle. 


Now there are 13 klt:thread characters/images (sandpiper, raven, nest, owl, owl  bride, owl groom, bulldog, german pointer, kitty, squirrel, hedgehog, fox, & rabbit) & so many projects & stories ahead….
