I'm a Tyvek kinda woman!

Saturday_september_17_2005 I've been playing with Tyvek and I love it.  The first time I used it was at a design symposium that I attended in July. I want to do a really large quilt with this material! I just can't stop touching it!   This is a postcard with the Tyvek sewn down on a quilted background. The colour comes from either Sharpie markers or oil pastel crayons.  I love these colours but the texture is what thrills me.  I'm going to add some sequins to distract from the funky quilting but I couldn't wait to show it off. I feel so lucky that something like this postcard is all it takes to make me have a good time!



Here are some more postcards. The 2 at the top are recent and went out to some friends as little surprises in their mailboxes.

  6. Have you heated and melted the tyvek? And also what Jen said - what is your tyvek source - creative minds need to know. Good to see yummy new work from you.
