Creating Clusters

I have recently been using some plastic/rubbery fabric that Sara passed on to me to use as a base for creating clusters - perhaps Sara can shed some light on what the fabric is - it feels like a shower curtain! The material has proved fantastic for this purpose as it crinkles and forms shapes that a soft fabric would not. I have always had an interest with the idea of "clusters" for Re-worked so I thought I'd try creating a few different styles using the same materials. I've combined the felt circles of different sizes with the silver coloured studs. I will take these further by now using some destructive techniques - would the material melt interestingly if branded? - and will post the results at a later date. I like the idea of combining these clusters with the cape style garment I made in the previous post - a definite contender for a final piece I think.

  1. These are looking great and I agree that combined with the cape, we could have a beautiful final piece! The fabric is waxed cotton - so amenable!
