Other Assorted Bafa Work

At the April meeting, Bafa members also shared classwork, work-in-progress, design exercises from previous meetings, and finished work (fig. 1-12).

I also posted a close up of Lydie's birdhouse from the baggie challenge (fig. 13).  Lydie's focus is on using old and used fabric and lots of stitching on a dimensional object that reminds me of a book in that as it is opened to lay flat, each "page" reveals another part of the story.  This looked like so much fun, we all decided we want to do one.  Mine will have to be a hanging fish bowl...LOL!

Bafa Meeting, April, 2017

It was a very full meeting in April.  Member's presented their journal page collage exercise (in its current stage) (fig. 1-12), and baggie challenge results (fig. 12-24).

After I did two challenges with my baggie, I added one light and one dark fabric to what was left and passed it on to Melissa Tweedel.  She added a bright yellow background (see fig. 19) to great effect.  Lydie R. dyed all of her baggie fabric brown and created an out-of-the-box birdhouse that folds open to reveal all of her fun stitch work (see fig. 21-24).
