MORE SHI SHA


What started out as a practice piece of shi sha has now turned into a proper piece that I will include in my Fabric Journal


This started with a couple of shi sha and has ended up with a circle.
This is how it goes with me, things kind of evolve with not a lot of planning.
Notice the tiny speck of blood next to the yellow one. An accidental hazard when sewing with sharp needles.
For any other sewers out there who do not know, saliva is the best blood remover and as you can see in the following photo's I managed to get most of it out.


Paisley pattern is one of my favourite patterns and after musing on what to put in the centre I decided on 3 paisley's.
I cut them out of paper and laid them on and decided that they looked good.


After marking them and stitching a line of cotton I am doing tiny chain stitches to outline each in a different colour.

What comes next?
Who knows...until my crowded brain comes up with the next step.

  2. I have never heard of this term; what does it mean? I love this, and can't wait to see when the paisley is done. Paisley is one of my favorite patterns. Reminds me of the 60's.

  7. It's looking lovely and nice that it evolves as you are working on it. In my experience, sometimes the end result is better when there hasn't been a plan!
    Best wishes

  8. Nice! And good to know about the blood-removal technique, too. (Although I don't sew, I do occasionally bleed from one minor injury or another!)
