well this didn't work

I saw leah day painting the world and loved it , you should check out the video.
I of course didn't want to do the same thing so thought of a soccer ball for some unknown reason.
and figured this would be my weekly 5 x 7 project
first I quilted for some texture
I mixed it with a gel medium thinking it would go on better - WRONG - red shows thru


so then put it on right from the jar - WRONG - to cakey (is that a word?)


ok, so this won't be a total loss, let me play with different stitches on my machine.


So I did and found the perfect stitch that looks like the seam on a baseball or soccer ball for a future project.
then labeled each with machine # and stitch width.
Now how smart am I?  :-)

  1. It's very interesting how one intention leads to another discovery. Interesting to again see your process.

  2. Might try discharging the shape of the soccer ball first then paint - great experiment. Mary Ann

  4. Interesting. I have not tried painting with dyes yet. The rest of my fiber group does it all the time though.

    I like your soccer ball!
