Painting with Dyes in the Studio
I got panicked about spring coming and thought I better take some time off dyeing pieces for Quilt Canada http://www.canadianquilter.com/ (Penticton, BC in May) to work on some textile cards. These are popular with tourists and locals looking for a little something special in a card. They are available at Creston Card and Stationery as well as on my website www.eileengidman.com.
After curing and rinsing, this strip will be cut into 6 1/2 X 4" pieces, ironed onto heavy interfacing, details in stitching may be added and then they will be glued to a card front. They are frameable or may be removed from the card to include sewn projects.
