Kantha Cloth Update

Several weeks back, I posted about my idea for a trip project and left with this piece to work on…..

As fate would have it, we ended up being super busy and I had VERY little time available to work on it, although I did manage to add a few stitches…..

I found it fun and relaxing to work on BUT I am not happy with the shredding that is occurring along the edges of the fabrics…..

I hadn’t wanted to fuse the fabrics down completely because I am afraid that it will make it too stiff and hard to get the needle through, but I think that will be the only way to stop the threads from pulling out.

Most likely I will not finish this piece but will certainly try again soon!!!

Have you ever done this technique? How did you solve this problem????
