I thought I'd share with you my day at the Malvern Show. It's much smaller than the ones at the NEC, but as it's closer to home and as a friend had won two tickets, who was I to refuse a free ticket :-)
One of the main reasons for going was to do the workshops.
The first one was called Magical Effects and the basic concept was to use nylon organza and cut and fuse it with a soldering iron. It was great fun, although I did get a little muddled with my seams! Here is my sampler piece...
The top right was made up using 6 strips of organza and they were cut and fused to form the patchwork. The bottom left was made up two organza squares with organza confetti sandwiched between the sheets and using a metal template the flowers were cut out with the iron. A third organza square was added to the bottom and then the flowers fused back on in the centres. Here is me working on my piece at the show.
