挑戦・Chousen 2


5-line drying

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

It’s nearly finished. I had to put in the pattern today as it’s the warmest it’s going to be all week. It rained this morning, but the sun came out briefly this afternoon, so I thought I’d chance it. Right now, it’s hanging on the line. It’s extremely heavy and feels more like heavy canvas. It was awkward hanging it, even so, it’s dragging on the ground. I just want the excess water to hang out.

Last night I played with paper and and ink practicing making patterns. This morning I folded it into triangles and clamped it. Last weekend I ironed and folded it into pleats. So now, all that’s left is to launder and dry it again (and iron it). I also need to finish the edges. I’m not sure if I will serge them and leave them as they are or hem them. If the serging looks good, I may leave it at that.

    This will make a nice tablecloth. I can imagine a meal laid out out on it. It’s a real chousen to do this on a heavy fabric like you chose. A great gift indeed!
    And congrats on the new direction!

      Thank you so much! I’m really pleased with the final results. I’d do it again. I have enough leftover fabric to continue exploring with it (in smaller pieces!).

    This is a lovely piece. Great colors. Looks heavy and substantial, like a wonderful tent to live in or a book of wonders…

    This should indeed be a book of wonders. The patterning and colors are so pleasing. (I’m afraid I see much in terms of books these days.)
