My second significant piece is finally finished. After hard work printing, and constantly on the sewing machine, I think it has all paid off.
After my first significant piece, I think this is definitely a step up; my skills have improved and you can definitely see them throughout the piece.
I am so pleased with how my printing has gone, I was so keen to really get going and work on something larger than my first.
Along the way, there were a few issues with the sewing machine (on a few occasions I really did think I had properly broken it!!!). But the only that was holding me back was that the wodding which I had put behind it was too thick to properly go through the machine. This was – admittedly – quite a stupid mistake but as my first significant piece was so successful I thought it would be okay.
Here is my finished piece!!
I am very pleased with this piece because I have taken all of my skills and produced something different and more exciting than before.
And finally, my last photograph for you …
Yes, some of my machine stitching is a little wonky in places, but I think this is nevertheless and successful piece, and I am very proud of myself for overcoming my difficulties and pursuing it until the end.
