captured fabric pieces

fabric captured in tulle black side

Partly in response to Bev's quilt of bread bag tags, I ran the stitching differently. Instead of linking them, the fabric pieces are captured between layers of tulle and stitching lines.

While working on this, I remembered why I really hate tulle; I dislike the way it dulls the fabric, and I hate stitching it. I remember why I tend to use silk organza to cover things I want to see slightly, because I like the texture and sheen of it. It is more opaque than the tulle, but nicer to work with; less stretchy and less scratchy.
