Stitching With Patterns

Layout detail - String Art On Paper
Are you joining in with the UKS Cybercrop?  It's free, with lots of interesting classes, challenges and games ... plus PRIZES!  Also, a certain someone did a class on Saturday afternoon ... more string art stitching with a template and instructions available to download.  Several people have already adapted the design page for their spider-webby Halloweeny photos.

Meanwhile, I have been attempting other people's classes and am now able to share a final page from my October Counterfeit Kit:

Layout - Africa, Animal Kingdom - Jimjams

Layout detail - zig-zag stiching on patchwork pattern
I was inspired by the patchwork quilt class by my friend Suzysnail and adapted it for a page featuring one of the African pillars in Disney's Animal Kingdom.  LOTS of machine zig-zag stitching later I had a finished page and a floor covered in sewing thread offcuts!

There's still time to join in on UKS - the deadlines are pretty relaxed (Friday evening for the classes, Saturday evening for the challenges).  Plenty of time too for you to check out the Master Forgers call over at the CKCB.

The string pattern is amazing! I always wanted to make a string picture at school, but that was only for the boys - this could be a great chance to get my wish! Great stuff.

Loved your class, and so pleased how my version turned out.

I love classes but am so bad at finishing or even starting lately. Love how you used the patchwork effect - it must have taken time to do and it looks very impressive.
I love the string art too - I remember doing that with the children but would not think to do it on paper. Very imaginative.
