This is a project I did a while ago. This is a Banksy graffiti designs of a girl reaching out for a heart shaped balloon embroidered onto a t-shirt. It took me forever. My boyfriend had made a stencil of the design to put on a canvas for a friend. However I borrowed it to get the outline onto the t-shirt. I used regular spray paint to mark it out with (I need to invest in some fabric paint). I then embroidered into the sprayed design using satin stitch and embroidery thread. I do love this t-shirt but it did take me a while due to all the detail. But I got a mention on someone’s blog who liked what I had done, so thanks Blog-standard.
Hey, my name is Kate and I live in the heart of the Cotswolds, England. I have always been making things since I was a small child and was set projects to keep me occupied during the holidays. Now I am incapable of sitting still and relaxing. I have to have at least one project or even 10 projects on the go to keep me sane!
I have many keen interests in the visual arts which has led me to complete a BA Hons Contemporary Textile degree as well as lots of other additional courses in photography, Print, Film, Jewellery making and metalsmithing.
This blog is my way of showcasing projects I have completed or work in progress as well as documenting things I have found inspiring on the web.
