From black cotton to a finished coat. It's always nice to complete a project.
I started with 3 yards of 100% black cotton, folding, painting the edges with a bleach/water solution, dripping, unfolding and painting. Details are in a September blog article.
The fabric was neutralized, washed three times and ironed. I adapted a basic kimono style pattern by extending the length of the jacket and the sleeves.
The seams were serged before turning and sewing French seams. A full length collar was added and the hems sewn. This is a perfect unlined light coat/jacket for a cool afternoon or evening.
I attended a workshop on Polymer Clay. I've trained to be a Sliver Clay instructor, but I haven't worked with the polymers. Thought I'd give it a try and had so much fun.
Instructor - Sharene Sue Screws - Demonstrating a variety of techniques.
We are all hard at work. There was so much to learn. We started at 9:30 and worked through to 5:00 with a short break for lunch and great conversation!
My pieces are ready to be fired.
Class work - fired and ready to assemble.
I really enjoyed working with the colors and techniques. Much to learn! I'll try this again.
