Evening All!! Right then, so, the moaning is (nearly) over and the relief has settled! I had the worst weekend (about 7 hours sleep since Friday) and hand in ever. So stressful! Most of my samples were made in the last week so there isn't much left of my fingers!
Welcome to show and tell!!

 (Above) Machine couching and organdie strips stitched onto water soluble fabric.

Strips of netting, cotton organdie, ribbon, couched ribbons and coloured synthetic string stitched onto water soluble fabric. Supported in the centre with a leather-look PVC.

Machine couched embroidery threads stitched onto water soluble fabric, then, once the fabric is dissolved, the threads were wrapped in places with sewing cotton.

 Strips of organdie and netting sewn to strips of PVC, emellished with beads down the middle strip.
 Twisted and stitched organdie strips stitched onto water soluble fabric (there was lots of the water soluble going around!).

Organdie strips stitched onto leather.

Strips of organdie and crimped polyester stitched onto linen to create tufts. What you can't see are the pleats and machine couched threads underneath.

Leather look PVC (ran out of the real leather) cut into strips then embellished with strips of organdie and bead strings.

Machine couched embroidery threads stitched onto leather.

Synthetic string and netting stitched onto leather-look PVC.

Box pleated netting with bead strings.
 This is two samples but I mounted them together because they looked strange on their own. Not sure if it works though.
Layers of organdie cut into strips and then wrapped together with ribbons or threads.

Layers of organdie machine stitched onto water soluble fabric and embellished with beads.

 Again the strip and pleat technique but a little more spaced, leggy and based on cotton organdie.

 Strips of organdie wrapped with leather strips.

Stitched organdie, netting and ribbons with couched machine couching (lots of couching!!) on the PVC.

 Ribbons, organdie, machine couched threads on linen fabric embellished further with beads.

So there you go, that's my Eden project in a very nutty nutshell!! Tomorrow I will show you other people's work. I am always very wary about taking photos of the other girl's work, especially now we are starting to promote ourselves as designers but I have got a few for you.
