Here are a couple of pictures from my current Alabama Chanin skirt. Taos is the perfect place for such a project as life is quite slow and relaxed here.
I used Chanin's organic knit in sand with white fabric paint. The beads are a combination of clear, silver and silver lined glass beads. I did not use a second color for the background fabric mainly because I could not decide what to use. So glad that I forged ahead anyway as I love how it is turning out.
I altered the stencil from the Studio Style book by cutting out the centers with an exacto blade to leave just the circles. I am mixing embroidery and beading around each circle. I am also layering circles on top of the paint on some instead of cutting out the center. This adds a little extra dimension.
With any luck I will finish all the beading this week. Only 1.75 panels to go.
