free motion stitching on painted canvas and gel transfer
hand stitching, machine stitching, painted melted tyvek on canvas
hand stitching and free motion machine stitching
were used on a photo transfer by this
grade 10 student.
The students were very keen to use the product Sulky "Solvy", which is a soluble film that is dissolved in water after it is stitched and the maker is left only with the stitching. The cuff shown below is a good example. It was stitched free form.
The artist of the following piece, "Media Destruction", also used the same product but achieved a different effect.
One can also draw with thread when using the darning foot attachment on a sewing machine.

the car and the text were drawn free hand with thread.
The art staff wants to have me back again next year but earlier in the year so the students will have more time to experiment and develop the sewing techniques.

I did help this student sew like a "real" quilter.
Look at her matching corners! Impressive!!
