Hoo-hoooooooo! This is a charming use of cheesecloth and envisioning. How imaginative you can be, makes me smile.

So neat! You sort of scrunch it and manipulate it with your fingers and then stitch? I've never seen this before!

Hi Deanna, looks great. I love working with cheesecloth, it's really very versatile and dyes well too. Also dyeing by using Derwent Intense Blocks. Fantastic colours which mix well, and are permanent. You are always doing something interesting. Marg. ox

Creatures of the cloth - simple shapes to begin with that have become so expressive!
