Doodle to Fabric

Another from the 'Layers' collection.
This started out as a doodle in my sketchbook [below]. For the fabric version above I started with vintage patterned fabrics which I patched together [not sewn] then painted it with clear gesso. I drew on the picture, not exactly the same as the doodle and then painted it with acrylics. All the outlines were machine stitched and the fabric was then wrapped around a canvas frame. 61 x 61cm
