My fantastic test piece, and some news!

First the news!

I am going to be a vendor at an Ann Arbor craft show this weekend: Crafting with Grace. That's Saturday, October 8th, from 9am to 5pm. Very exciting!

Second, the proof of concept test! I have in mind a  ridiculously complicated art piece, but it will require printing on fabric and layering the prints... So, this is a fairly simple test run, that then became the centerpiece in yet another pouch.

a ghost
The ghost was printed on two pieces of my hand-dyed fabric, and then the green was cut and glued on with applique iron-on adhesives. I matched up the edges of the prints, so I didn't have to be too careful with the cutting.

The fabric on the top is what I used to line the pouch. Also: I put the tab on the wrong side! It's embarrassing. Still, overall, I'm very happy with the piece.

and the back
and, for the sake of completeness, the back.

So! Now, once this craft fair is over, (and the bag I've been working on is finished) and I get the Halloween costume I'm slated to make squared away, I can get down to working on that mysterious art project!
