Tammy Challenge # 5 Self Portrait
I finished mine! The why is what the inside of my head is like. The how was I set up a light in the dark hall and had my son trace my profile onto a sheet of paper. Then I copied it onto muslin, I then used fabric paints to do the outline. I added lots of tiny pieces of fabric, threads, laces, ribbon, and odds and ends to the inside. I covered it with thin tulle, and free motion quilted with invisible thread. I am not happy with my zigzag stitch around the edges, but like the look. (just not too good at it yet) I had a hard time with this one, but am please with my results.
