So, I had this picture of my cat FUZZ, and I ran it through Photoshop (Version 5.5, I bought it in 2000). Next, I printed him out on white cotton fabric and painted over the faces with translucent fabric paint.
I appliqued one head to the fabric before doing the background stitching, but it was a pain in the butt to stitch around the head, so for the rest I did the background stitching first.
These pieces are about 4" square, and need to be finished along the edges (also need beads or sequins or more stitching or all of the above). My plan is to let them ripen for a few days while I work with other images printed on fabric, most likely fabric postcards.
