You will need your Orts, sewing machine with drop feed, various metallic or fun threads, sheer silk organza or any sheer you can see through in white or cream. If you want an overall color you can use a colored sheer as well.
I take my fabric bits and cut them using a rotary cutter. I lay them on a cutting mat and just go in every direction until I have a fabric salad. If I don't have enough "glam" I add a bit of lame', ironed Angelina fibers chopped to pieces. For more romance add bits of vintage lace scattered about.
Next you lay down a piece of organza or sheer the size of fabric you desire. Sprinkle the fabric salad filling the area then sprinkle your ORTs on top. Since I use a lot of Kreink metallic threads, my mixture has a nice sparkle every time.
Next cover this salad mixture with another layer of sheer. Pin every 2 inches to keep goodies between the sheers.
Begin free motion stitching from the center spiraling outward to baste everything down. Change threads often for more pizazz and interest. Just go crazy with your stitching until you have secured all the salad.
If you feel adventurous or plain crazy (like moi) sew on some seed beads, sequins, add an image, doily,charms, found items, etc.
Now use your newly created fabric for projects such as this purse. It is also nice for jewelry, bookmarks, box covers, fabric books, etc.
