Making Cloth and Patchwork Beasts

First an update on the avocado dyeing. Dyeing with the avocado pit, chopped up and in the sun for a few weeks, was not successful for me. I probably didn't leave it in the jar long enough but the dye that was picked up by the fabric rinsed right out leaving the original fabric color.

I have been busy creating story cloth and patchwork beasts in the online classes that Jude Hill has offered. She is so generous with her information and I have gotten lots of inspiration from her lessons and learned lots of new techniques. I have posted some pictures of some of the pieces still being worked on.

You have a wonderful menagerie here. Many beasts with some wonderful stories to find out about! And what's really interesting is that they are all so different from one another! I just finished my first patchwork butterfly and will post later today. You've been cookin with your needle and thread!
