Fancy, Punky ‘Shroom

Posted in handmade, projects with tags , , on September 15, 2011 by darcyarts

If the materials are visible I will make something. I have placed cloth that currently fascinates me right on my work table.

Here are my two latest creations:

The Pirate shroom is small and dark.

This is what comes of playing with last year’s Halloween material.

Spider web see-through cloth makes a strange punky mushroom.

The ruffle is made of pink gauzy stuff, soft shiny pink material and purple and black striped jersey.

I am obsessed with making ruffles because they can combine such interesting colors and textures. I love them as a stand in for complex organic shapes.

I think the little mushrooms like these pretty skirts. My mind dances with images of combined cloth. Closets and drawers are full of possibilities.
