AEDM Days 4 and 5

Yesterday, I spent much of the day converting the drawing of my parents into pieces of colored, fused fabric that could be put back together like pieces of a puzzle.



I fused them on to very lightweight interfacing. My next step is to cut out the entire figures and fuse them on to a background fabric. Then I'll make adjustments (my dad's feet are too small!) sew everything down, add details (like faces!) and do background stitching. I'm hoping to have most of this done by the end of the day. Meanwhile, I'm simultaneously working on mounting some pictures I had done previously so that everything is fairly uniform - stretched over stretcher strips.

Hope everyone has a great day!
Hello to my fellow AEDM participants!

See you tomorrow!

I look forward to watching this one progress. I love old photos like this, and to be able to render it in fabric is amazing!
