Thank you so much! The hair was definitely a challenge, but thanks to the incredible fabric resources available to me I was able to find a piece that lent itself to braided hair quite well.

Hi Kerrie, I have been having a look at your beautiful work . It is incredible. What size are the fabric pieces you use? They look tiny and do you sew them on? My favourite is still Irene though I think. Which is your favourite?

Thank you for viewing my fabric art; your observations are astute. The pieces are, in fact, sometimes very, very small. I use tweezers to place many of the fragments. They are not stitched, they are fused with heat.
As for my favorite, that is hard to say. Usually, whatever I’m working on becomes my favorite of the moment. I think it has to be that way so that I have the patience and drive to complete it. The work can become very difficult at times (for me, anyway) and it becomes an act of will driven by desire to see the finished piece that propels me forward to completion.
And thank you for following. 🙂
