I have been playing around with this idea for a while. To create wearables using my landscape patchwork techniques.
My process takes a while. I think about it, experiment in my head, look at fabrics and then begin to play.
I am sorting piles of scraps and fabrics again, and this morning found some narrow summer strip pieces
and a used black mens button down shirt that I had deconstructed last month and it was waiting to be used in a project.
I cut the black fabric into strips
Experimented with color placement and sat down to sew
This is the piece that I created this morning
It could be a wave landscape art piece
But I have other plans for it. A front panel for a vest or a jacket. It falls nicely
And is perfect on the back.
Now that I see that the weight of the fabric on a flannel base is not too heavy its time to do some more experimenting, I envision a vest, jacket and coat.
