|The starting point|
|Is that a scream forming...?|
It's fair to say that expressions looked a little concerned, some of the samples did look a tad spooky, before the participants reached for the calico & muslin and began their folding experimentation.
There were an amusing selection of comments along the way such as, "However I fold this it still looks like my father", as the group settled into the task and their inventiveness gathered steam.
Fabric was ripped, shredded, Suffolk Puffed and frayed as faces took on characteristics as unique as the costumes which evolved around them. This was such a fun exercise to do resulting in an unexpected and delightful collection of characters. So very well done to all who took part!
The Sewcial will return next January with a new set of challenges. Dates can be found HERE if you'd like to join in.
