Just a thought

Post by ashleighjane on 2012-01-07, 07:23

Whilst watching an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer earlier this jumper made me wonder if it would be possible to somehow sew a quilling design onto clothing. What do you all think?

Looking good, the only thing is what happens when you wish to wash your jumper??????. Although there is a paper strengthener from the firm "Rayher" and lack. Just joking I am sure you would take it off before the jumper goes into the wash, but the idea is good, for in the 16 century they did quilling on clothing and furniture. Here are just one samples from the 16th century.

I guess with the latest sewing machines there maybe a stitch where you could replicate a quilling pattern. But you would not get the dimension.
For me inspiration works the other way, I see a design somewhere and i think "I would like to quill that"

A good hint for newbies is to make quilling notes of inspiratioal thoughts and patterns. It comes in handy in years down the track
