Chapter 9 Stitching into Papers

I didn't colour the pulps with dye so the papers are very pale, just slightly pink from where the dye must have come out of some of the threads I used.

I've put the original first followed by the stitched sample.



Sample 1
thick thread embedded in pulp,
individual Basque stitch


Sample 2
drawn thread fabric with paper around edge,
cross stitch



Sample 3
pulp on back of drawn thread fabric,
paper shows through after hand stitching



Sample 4
drawn thread fabric with paper edge,
backed with green fabric then pink hand stitched




Sample 5
drawn thread fabric with paper edge
cross stitch and herringbone stich



Sample 6
thick thread grid embedded in pulp,
hand stitching in squares



Sample 7
Used the last of the pulp with thread grid,
Cretan stitch to attach it to background fabric

Hand embroidered stitch on edge of paper.

 

Machine stitch on edge of paper.
