I used a natural linen fabric as the base layer for this project. I cut it out using a pre-drawn template, and then interfaced it. I selected and cut out a range of different fabrics including vintage lace, printed organza and other vintage fabrics including linen. Some of the fabrics had been hand-dyed and had former lives as armchair covers, doilies or tray cloths. I selected the image which had been printed on linen, and then all the fabric pieces were arranged on to the natural linen base.
