I am so glad I signed up for this swap! I spent much longer than necessary thinking about it. Which also means I’m a day late sending my fabric out. I once turned in a project late in one of my Design classes in college. And I’ve never forgotten what my professor said. “If everyone had had as much time as you, they could have created something as outstanding.” This was stated in front of the entire class. I think she was trying to stress that meeting deadlines was an important part of being a designer/artist… and that even if your design is great it won’t matter in the real world if you can’t get it turned in on time.
Thankfully this is not a paying job, and hopefully my recipients won’t mind getting it a day later. I tried some things out on a test piece, and I actually like the random patterns on it. The upper designs were done with a stamping technique and the clouds were done using freezer paper stenciling.
Here are the final results for the swap. I have plenty of fabric though and plan to continue my experiments!
