Fabric painting


I did it! Thanks to the encouragement of Shirley I completed these two pieces. First, I ran upstairs to pull out the box of fabric paints that I had not opened. Then I found the bleached muslin that I had bought for this purpose. After the fabric was painted and the "sandwich" made (front, batting and backing), I used the sewing machine, set on free-motion, to stitch this figure. What fun! Who knows there this will lead?
