Mad Mod Stitch

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Mad sewing today.  Destash of some painted canvas and scraps into some pillows for the studio.  Mad, and a bit of mod stitch.


I made the bottom two to go along with my moonpie face.

Unwrapped the Erosion Bundle as well.  Not thrilling results since I did not start until January and did not have too much natural material to put into it.  Still some nice rust marks here and there.  Next year I shall try again, might even bury a bundle in the compost pile this summer!!! That should get some action.  Anyway, here’s a few photos so you can see what’s what.  Not too much mold thankfully.  Just going to have to let it all dry out.

    Interesting bundle. I can relate to mad; a little insanity is an absolute requirement.

  3. love your colorful stitching! As for being mad —
    “But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
    “Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
    “How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
    “You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”
    ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

    I’m not sure what an erosion bundle is but I’m going to investigate it.

  4. A bit of insanity is not necessarily a bad thing, Corrine! Artists often do their best work when they are a bit mad, now, don’t they? Great bundle here, and I love your pillows!

    How you do have such wonderful,colorful ideas!!!
    The middle pillow has sweet ruffles,too!

  6. I adore that bit of blue that got onto the wash cloth. And rust always gets my heart pounding. You have some nice pieces there.

    of course, the pillows are MAD, bad, and oh so colorful. LOVE them all!!

  7. Those pillows are just adorable And oh so colorful. Fun bundle… drive over it with your truck too. Lol.

  8. great pillows, they make me smile! Your erosion bundle didn’t erode very much. I had the same results my first bundle and I just wrapped it up and put it back out but the next time I remembered to check it it was mostly gone. I salvaged a few bits. There are things I’d do differently next time.

  9. Ooo! Love your studio pillows! Also I’d love to try one of those bundles but don’t really know the details of how. Very cool!

  10. Amazing studio pillows Corinne.. GORGEOUS!
    I am sure you will make pretty art with the fabric out of this bundle as well!
    Happy EASTER Sweetie!

  11. I like the way you mix the painted cloth with the purchased fabric.
    Love the pink/red cushion with the frill and the fabric underneath.
    And of course I love Mrs. Happy Moonface.

  12. Your pillows are lovely and cheerful. I put my erosion bundles out a bit late too. One is drying out in the conservatory and the other is still outside but I will bring it in today and have a look at both. You have some lovely rust marks in yours.


  14. I love your bunch of pillows ,they looks wonderful, to sit back in !
    You made me think, when was last time I made an arosion bundle, and it is far too long ago,- I would like to do one more, but would have to burry one, just like you,wants to try !! You did have some great results , Corrine.

    first: i can´t stop laughing about your moonface pillow with that wonderful HAIR!! gorgeous!! and i love how you paint your fabrics. it is also on top of my to-do list, especially trying the gelli plate on it and carved stamps.
    then the bündle: completely after my taste… do you wash out the traces of rust after that (i suppose flying rusty parts affect everything?)… i think i wouldn´t dare to dig it in the compost, but i´m looking Forward to your results.
    wonderful post, corrinne!!

  16. Those pillows are YUM!
    I actually like the erosion bundle. Really interesting!

  17. Your pillows are such rays of sunshine and so colorful!
    I had such fun with Seth’s erosion project a few years ago and really meant to get going on more bundles…good for you and not sure what it is about rust but it always thrills me.
    My father would turn over in his grave if he knew I was intentionally trying to rust things when he spent his whole life keeping things spiffy and rust free 😉
