heating up

Earlier this year I bought the book Hot Textiles by Kim Thittichai and have just finished this small wall hanging(20x29cms) and really enjoyed playing with the heat gun etc. Again, I already had a background piece of felt with odd bits of paint and embroidery on so I added some bits of yarn and fibre,backed a piece of voile with Bondaweb and layed it on top and 'zapped' it. Finally, I added some extra beads and thread. I met Kim at the Knitting and Stitching show at the NEC in September and had the opportunity to buy some more 'stuff' to experiment with. I would like to take a class with her if I get the chance. In the meantime I am trying to use some of the mountain of unfinished bits I already have.
