Lastly I have redone one of my samples for chapter 8 showing fabric manipulation. One shows crumpled cotton organdie set with an iron; the creases are held in place using fine linen thread and fly stitches. I have then pleated the fabric to represent the denser areas of paper and held these down with layers of heringbone stitch using thicker thread.
In the third sample I have added couching of ribbon, stem stitch and chain stitch.
In the second I have tried to represent the hazy effect of the rubbing with torn gauzy paper and fine fly stitches. I have tried to represent movement using changing stitch direction.
