I am desperate to build on my sewing and textile skills, I love working with fabric so a new project has given me this opportunity. Ellen Welsh has recently worked in Soft Sculpture and textiles, so I was reading her blog (which you should all check out! Just click the link above) and she recommended a book. I received my copy in the post this morning and for anyone who is looking at working with soft sculpture it’s a really useful book!
A few things I picked out from the book to work with includes the chapter on construction and Ideas for inspiration, the parts about primitive influences in particular (p.25). In addition ‘The Cover’ by Mary Lou Higgins (p.36), which is a 44” high quilted satin wall hanging and ‘Ma Bell’ by Kay M. Aronson (p.61) a three dimensional textile wall piece. The book is also extremely useful in teaching you hand embroidery stitches.
