Thursday

Final Piece - Day Eight


Wednesday was all about the cutting. I finished all my sewing on Tuesday, but a big part of my design is the contrast between very regular square, dense stitching and then voids which are cut into the design and exaggerated in the display. I thought I'd show you a series of photos to give you an idea how I create these spaces - a little bit to show how much work goes into a very subtle piece, and also so I can see where all my day has gone!

First you have the sewn textile. Here you can see an area of dense stitch, and square stitch.

Then there is ripping:

snipping

plumping to get rid of all the holes

then ta-da: voids....just really REALLY subtle ones (it's really hard to photograph these it seems)
