A very plain white zip-up french terry cover-up becomes couture courtesy of “The Stash”.
This Sun Face motif was placed across the upper back of the cover-up.
The center is a simple purple and gold polymer clay sun face made from a mold glued to felt and beaded.
Two stash fabrics circles were fused down and then the edges were machine zig-zagged. The pink is a metallic sheer. I was not sure the fusible would work with a sheer, but it did not “leak” through at all.
The swirly “air currents” were then hand stitched.
The sleeves and one pocket received some small swirly air currents.
Total Time: 2 Hours
Total Cost: $0
I took two pictures during the “Making Of”. I am not one to sketch the design. I have tried, but the finished product never looks like the sketch – it just seems to evolve as I work on it.
This marbled-look fabric really made the purple/gold sun face stand out.
I kept trying to add sun-rays, but they just didn’t seem to work.
I decided on the hand stitched “air currents” instead.
So much fun to make! Wore it to aerobics yesterday and got so many compliments!
Does anyone know if polymer clay is washable?
