I took along the Embellisher Machines this week to 'Textile Tuesday and several new students had a play and created an ATC of Embellished Felt. It re- inspired me again and I looked on the internet for more creative ideas on how to mix fabrics and techniques using the machine and found, 'Double Trouble'.
This has given me lots more ideas. Enjoy watching this video with Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn.

I am teaching many textile techniques on a Tuesday @The Gallery, one of which is costume and corsetry. I am using this fashion item and its elements of design as inspiration for many different projects. See my daily blog for the other projects and some of the experiences I have as an artist.
The surgical corset or under garment has been around for centuries and this video which is astonishing in some respects of how women choose to adapt their lives to fashion.

the a similar one which I hope to make.

I found this wonderful Fabric Journal made by keeponscraping on You Tube and was really inspired. As some of you may know I have been collecting Dress Forms and items that I could make a scrap book journal but decided that this was far more interesting to start my creativity off for 2012.
