Fast Friday Fabric Challenge #38

I've missed the last two FFFC so managed to get this one done in time. Our challenge was to do an animal and create depth by reverse applique etc.  I cropped a picture of a zebra and used it as a reference for drawing.  Laid down a piece of hand painted fabric, with black overtop. Drew the design on the paper back of the stabalizer and stitched. Then came the hard part, cutting it all out.  I used a blanket stitch with blue thread on the black lines. It measures 21x24" I call it 'African Sunset'.
 A fun piece.
Thanks for having a look.

Heavy snow fall warning in the Peace, and it has been coming down pretty steady all day...oh well It is just about Haloween.

New purse/bag

After nearly a month I finally got into the studio on the weekend. My sister, son and I took a trip down to North Central WA, we did the shop hop and had such a great time. Wow, the fabrics south of the border are sure less expensive than up here.
Then we stopped at Keremeos and loaded up on veggies and fruit, so then when I got home it was canning time.
Anyway, here is what I did on the weekend.
I painted paper sided stabalizer and ironed it to the fabric, added some shapes and gold foil etc., I like it. But I like the back side the best :) I can see making more of these.

Have a nice day.
