Seeing in Fabric
http://www.seeinginfabric.com/

What at first appear to be paintings, are actually sewn fabric artwork. Each wall hanging is handmade entirely with just fabric, thread, scissors, and a 1968 Singer sewing machine. Each scene features many dozens of tiny hand-cut fabric pieces. All of the fabrics she uses in her artwork are recycled–scrap, remnants and re-purposed clothing. Threadwork and stitching techniques are central to the realism and painterly aspects of Seeing in Fabric. By using a color palatte of thread in over 200 different colors, but just 2 basic stitch types–straight stitch and zigzag–Jamie creates a multitude of “shading”, “brushstroke” and “drawing” effects. Finished artwork is stretched over a ready-to-hang canvas.
