 Work on a base of shrinkable fabric to layer up and machine stitch lots of different fabrics - silks, velvet, cottons, linen and lace before dyeing in a colourway of your choice. You will then take your piece home to wash and shrink. Perfect backgrounds for further embellishment with hand or machine embroidery.
