It is time to show You my work in progres. It will be a RAG Bag. What that means. Well it looks rough quilted an not so precise as I normaly use to work, but I believe it is good for me to try that.
I took a piece of jeans, than grab some stripes of different scraps of fabric. I used greens, blues and yellows. Dropped about 2 till 3 layers over the jeans.
Than I put my lovely gray Dupion Silk over the whole and pinned it together. It is a good idea to first make the drawing from the pattern on the silk, for what ever You want to make. Now it is time to make different lines close to each oter. Circels are fine too.
After You are happy with your design it is time to cut in between the lines with a very sharp little scissor. Be careful not to cut into the last fabric, or You will have a hole. If You like it very rough, than You need to wash the piece now. Which I did. Than more sewing on the machine. This time a square pattern. I made mine a little too small, because it is difficult to cut them open, but hey it is my first ragpiece.
So cutting near 2 sewing lines from the squares, after cutting them open You need to sew the corners down with a matching tread. It is a lot of work but I like the outcome although it will take an other day or 2 before that is finished.
