Goose Stencil Fun

Standard

I managed to grab a bit of time here and there to work on my hand-cut goose stencil(from Melanie Testa’s Clever Guild class: http://thecleverguild.com/ ) deciding that the best way to do so is to do some handwork while spending time with Stewie.

Therefore I created a migratory map/stencil piece on fabric just to try a few different techniques. I posted it on Flickr( with a long explanation) so you can see it here:

and read about it here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/coolquilting/. My main concern is to whiten up the goose body…..

I think the migratory map original image was from the NOAA…so I am just borrowing it for practice only. The map had dotted lines on it for pathways so I am going to embroider over them- this is the handwork I can do while keeping an eye on Stewie

I also posted a couple of attempts with the stencil on 2 different fabrics. It takes abit of practice to figure out the best amount /thickness of fabric paint to use, but slowly I am working it out.
