Print to Stitch Lichen

Print to Stitch Lichen

I finally finished my last print to stitch piece from my class homework. This piece was all stitched by hand and I started it in class on September 8th. I finished it on November 22. I can’t say that I worked on it every day but I did spend 3-4 hours per week on it. I thought it was never going to be finished. But I made it just in time. I go back to class on November 28th.

This is the original photo. It is a rock with various kinds of lichen on it. The photo was cropped and printed on to fabric. And then I started stitching. I stitched and stitched and stitched…

Here is the finished piece. You should be able to click on the photo to get a better look at the stitching. Most of the stitches are detached chain stitch with the thread left loose. The white parts at the  bottom are painted and heated Tyvek.  The background stitching is seed stitch. All the orange stitching was done with a variety of shades of orange which were hand dyed. I am so happy it’s finished!

I’ve been busy stitching away on my homework for my stitch class. This session we worked on printing photos on fabric and then adding layers of sheer fabric and stitch to “enhance” the photo. I’ve still got a couple more to go and one hand stitch one that isn’t shown that I’ve been stitching on for almost 8 weeks and I’m still only halfway there.
