I wanted to know how it would look if I randomly layered a few fabrics onto some batting and held the fabrics together with only straight stitches.
Having made a few straight-stitched rings, I then wondered if I could somehow thread the straight stitches with various yarns.
So I tried stuffed viscose ribbon, thick yarn, lots of strands of thin yarn – all just threaded through a thick blunt needle and carried under the stitches.
The pieced background almost looks like one piece if you stitch enough. Interesting.
