This was my first attempt at creating a machine sewn picture. It was inspired by my textile art course, and is also the first thing I have completed using my new sewing machine. The background is pieces of curtain fused to another layer of fabric using Bondaweb. I sewed the waves in, sewed the plants, and then fused the whale, fish and octopus, again using Bondaweb. The eyes are hand stitched but everything else is machine stitched.
