'Cakes' - My first Textile Brief.
For my first brief I had to make a pin cushion using the theme 'Cakes'.
To begin the project I learnt, practiced and took further new techniques. One of my favourites was rag rugging, this meant that when it came to creating my cake product I knew I wanted to use this technique. I love to feel and touch products which means I always think about texture and surface while doing my work giving them a tactile quality.
I created a forest fruit gateau using a range of purple materials including, plastic bags, fleece, cotton and wool to construct a textural top. I also dry felted the bottom half giving it a soft to hard contrast.
