Pauline shows us how to create 3D shapes from cleaning scrim with the help of her sewing machine.
Pauline is the organiser of Textiles in Focus and we caught up with her at the event while she was demonstrating how to create 3D shapes with wire and cheap fabric scrim. This is usually used for cleaning purposes but once dyed a pretty colour it is amazing how effective it can become.
Pauline uses simple zig-zag stitch on her sewing machine to cover thin wire which she has twisted into the leaf shape but this technique can also be done by hand with a simple buttonhole/blanket stitch.
