Sewing on Wallpaper??

 

wallpaper sewing2Hello everyone! Perhaps my last post “Skippity Skip” was a tad premature……muscle aches, lethargy, and general flu like symptoms lasted for quite a few days, and today I finally feel a bit better…(she says cautiously)

Anyway…..sewing on wallpaper, whats that all about? Let me tell you then. I have acquired several wallpaper sample books from my lovely local decorating shop, and today I rifled through them wondering how to use them. I tried some collage, but no matter what glue I used, nothing would stick! So I came up with the idea of sewing the pieces on…..a bit bizarre, some might say.

But….there is much to learn with this technique!

Not just the colours, but textures. Shapes and placement. PLUS, the thread colour and style of stitching – whether its part of the design element or not. These are just a couple of practice pieces, but I have more on the go.

Wallpaper structure is very sturdy and doesn’t crease or tear. It can be washed (obviously), and I’m finding it is very like working with textiles in a way. I’m loving this because it incorporates all creativeness in one! Such experimentation to be had. 🙂
