I was contacted tonight and asked if I wanted to be in a fiber arts show in a gallery. The woman knows I sew and wantes me to sew somthing. I am at a loss with what to do. I have until Feb.18. One  i dea i Have is to make a 1950s inspired dress and embroider the hell out of it with tattoo and horror images, all over. covering it. To kind of throw off the vintage look. But I dont know. Anyone else have an idea they would like to share with me

Oh, yes.
I :
sew
knit
crotchet
embroider
and paint( not always well, but I can do it)

Is there a theme to the show?  Are there any constraints at all on what you make?  Is it a wearable arts thing? Huh

By the way, I like your idea!

There isnt a theme, and I usually do some sort of wearable art.

I thought of another idea too
I want to get a vintage wooden frame and embroider one of Warhol's pictures on fabric and uput it in the frame.

"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

I love both ideas, though I'm more inclined to the inked vintage dress. That sounds like it would be a really fascinating piece.

i was going to do the dress. but I can't find the right pattern or fabric( I'm rather picky) So I went with one of Warhol's Marilyns. the background it pink and the face is yellow with red hair. I want to map it out tonight.
