After I made the test piece, I decided that I liked the technique and result, but I didn't want to wrestle a large piece around the machine. So, I decided to make some more pieces the same size with different backgrounds and different colorways of the printed pictures.
Here are the 8 other pieces:
These pieces have been so much fun to make. Like playing! I was able to use a lot of threads that I had on hand that were perfect for the satin stitch highlighting - 40 weight rayon, metallic, and heavy weight variegated threads.
I placed the pieces on my design board and now I will have to figure out how to attach them together. Hmm. Well, I do have a lot of time on my hands. So maybe more testing of techniques?
What do you think so far?
