Tracy Stilwell guided me through my first real sewing adventure. I have sewn paper, bits of fabric, even a tote, but never on any clothes I could wear. While we talked at the start of class I realized I had some serious sewing issues. Did home economics class in high school scar me? Apparently. I was intimidated by patterns, deciding which stitch, would it hold up in the wash, etc. After a day with Tracy I realized it is just another medium like paint! A whole new world opened up for me. I chose to do a face because I have had limited success with painting faces. I thought that while I have a teacher with me I’ll try the hard stuff. I truly love this face. I feel so much more comfortable with faces now. Thanks Tracy!
I started with an old paint shirt that I had rubber stamped years ago with Stazon ink. I started creating the face on the back. I started with the basics and Tracy guided me on how to create more interest with layers of fabric.
