Foliage to Fabric

Fabric Leaf embellishments
From foliage to fabric
I love using transfer mediums especially
fabric crayons and paints

The simple leaves from my yellow rose were perfect for taking rubbings from with the crayons


I painted over these with the transfer paints

and cut them out


I laid these out face down onto white cotton fabric, covered with more fabric to hold the paper cut outs in place then pressed them with a hot iron.

********
I didn't get a good picture of the transferred images before the next stage but have since did some more of these and decided to iron the image onto pale green cotton shirt fabric to good effect.

Transferred images covered with little pieces of chiffon and organza fabrics


 free machine stitched around the outlines


You can still see the leaf crayon imprints through the organza

Then I went a bit mad and had some fun with some more free machine embroidery


 trimmed to the stitched edge
