Campfire Eggs

My objective was to use Texture Magic, a product I purchased 4-5 years ago and have never used. Sound familiar? Heather jokingly suggested that scrambled eggs would fit the bill.

This is a 3-D piece, the frying pan is a painted piece of foam. Texture Magic is a light weight interfacing type fabric that is quilted onto a piece of fabric. I used a small stipple stitch to give a more dense-like texture. Once quilted steam is applied to shrink the fabric and create the texture.

  2. Your frying pan is sublime, the painting works so well on the foam. This is one I'd love to see up close. It's making me hungry for breakfast (it's 6.50 am here!).

  3. You have a lovely sense of humour, Colleen. Perfect technique for scrabbled eggs! Love the red and white check tablecloth - all in all, yummy.

  4. Different idea - love the fact that you have used a 3D effect so well. It looks so real and ready to eat!

  5. Ditto to all the above! The contrast in the fabric you've chosen for the background is the perfect finishing touch.

  6. Having seen this to touch it really is a fun piece. Even the frying pan is textural. Well done!

  9. Bravo for experimenting with all kinds of weird and wonderful products. How many of us have bought things and let them rot in our cupboards. What a great end result!
