Ideas Ideas Ideas

So I had a tutorial today which I found extremely useful and it triggered some ideas. A lot of what we discussed was how to get away from a purely embroidered piece which would be highly time consuming and incorporating different techniques to create a possibly slightly larger final outcome. Some Ideas...
  • Screen printing my own images and patterns onto fabric
  • Block and pattern squares of material to form a larger image- ambiguous from close up and becomes clearer from a distance
  • Combination of detailed embroidery, faster sewing machine work and transfer printed photos
  • Simplifying the images completely creating a kind of series of symbols to represent specific family members and then this code could come together to form one main image
  • Using a cross stitch method
