Entry #4 What I did On My Summer Vacation - Coffee? Tea? Art?

Coffee? Tea? Art?

A week or so ago I found a package of coffee filters. I knew they had great potential so I took them home. I have been working on several different pieces with them, but the first one is finished so I wanted to share it. I will post the others when they are complete. I tea-dyed the filters to give them a mottled sepia look. I then hand stitched them into the yo-yo form that I have used before in textile artwork. They are quite strong and flexible and are a pleasure to work with. I love sewing on paper by hand or machine. The only things I used from my studio were tea, needle and thread.
