Inked and thread-painted, hand-dyes, acrylic paint, beads and assorted trims, machine stitched and quilted
I was inspired by a news story that showed a parade of pets during Carnival in Rio de Janeiro this year. I tried to think of what kind of dogs would be fun at a party and I chose Jack Russell terriers because they seem like such high-spirited dogs.
And I thought they might enjoy the hats. The hats are fused hand-dyes with machine stitched accents and hand-beading. I challenged myself to use only stuff I already had and I was delighted to find this quilting thread in my stash that perfectly complemented the hand-dyed background.
