I'd be interested in this, too. Right now I have students drawing directly
on fabric with a fabric pen (that will fade in a few days or sooner if we
wash it). I got this "neat" (?) idea of having some of my advanced students
do contour drawings of either designs or subject matter of their choice and
transfering this to fabric. They're backstitching along their lines through
2 pieces of white fabric. When they've completed that part, we're going to
try making small slits in the back and inserting stuffing to raise some
areas of their design (then closing the areas on the back). I'll let you
know how these turn out!!
