I dug out one of my little sisters baby shoe’s and I thought it would be a good idea to draw from it as it resembles her childhood and also a memory of mine because it was a very special moment for me and my family when she was born. My life drawing skills have definitely come in use as this drawing is pretty accurate and my drawing teacher Nicola couldn’t even fault it. To develop this further, I could photocopy a few of them and add colour to some along with stitch and texture. I could also layer it up with a few other materials, and it could be part of the memory book I plan to create.
I have gathered photos of me, my siblings and parents and traced them. I had no idea what the outcome would be , I was just experimenting but I happen to really like the result. They have an animated look to them and i think they would look great if I embroidered them onto fabric as part of my experimental samples which could later result in being some form of garment.
