Tyvek Experiments

Finally managed to get a minute to play (even though I should be studying Henry V - naughty me). Coloured some tyvek with Stewart Gill Fabric Paints of different varieties and then stitched into the tyvek when it was dry and heated with heat gun. This piece was the soft tyvek.

This piece was the firmer 'paper' style tyvek with similar technique only I stitched on water soluble stuff first then attached it to the tyvek before I used the heat gun.

Some tyvek beads - painted then stitched with zigzag stitch down the centre before heating.

I have no idea what I'm going to use them for - maybe journal covers. It was just nice to play for five minutes!

They look really interesting... such a cool texture & I love the red (I am the lady in red... so much so that one Sunday the vicar commented that I wasn't wearing red & in one of those please-engage-brain-oh-sod-it-I've-said-it moments, I just replied, "Yes I am, just not on top...." Red faces were being worn, too!)

They have come out nicely, I've never even seen tyvek though I have heard about it.
