I love the raw, primitive style of this piece.
Initially, I wanted to hand stitch the whole piece. It became clear to me that a section of the denim area that has to attached to 3 layers needed to be machine stitched. I was concerned that the machine and hand stitching would throw off the piece. Now that I had time to look it, I think both types of stitching work well together.
This piece is almost done except for the decision of how to hide the section where the rusted fabric meets the denim. Right now I'm auditioning different sizes and shapes of leather.
To be continued...
