Chopped up fibres ........these are chopped up fabrics and fibres free machined then hand stitched ...in fact this first piece was the very first one I EVER made in 1992 .....a historic piece !!...




Fun with plastics .....I love working with plastics these are mostly free machine embroidery....I encase threads and bits in between layers of plastics then melt them together and stitch on top ....
