In Module 8 we have to present a proposal for a 3D item, to be based on the Texture Design Portfolio we did for Module 4. My proposal for the 3D item was a cushion based on the geology drawings and samples I did for that module.
I wanted to create a hexagonal shape with a crazy patchwork feel. I made a heavily embroidered panel based on the heavily stitched sample I created for Module 4 and then cut it up and sewed it back together in the hexagon shape. I added plain and harlequin borders before finishing it off with piping made in the same fabric and hand made tassels. I also used sequins, beads and gold work elements for an opulent feel.
I’m really pleased with the way it turned out! Hope you like it too.
