Greetje Hein – Artist style #6

Artist #6

What if…..I enlarge the pattern and only use stitching.

I took an interesting part of the original pattern and enlarged this part.

For the colored parts I didn’t use fabric or paint, but created the color just by using colored thread to stitch a pattern. All parts are stitched with different patterns. I used rayon thread for the white, blue, red and yellow parts. The black stripes I did with Quick Bias- fusible bias tape.
