Our task was to produce an item for a client to their brief. My client was the head of wardrobe from our local Amateur Dramatics Society who wanted me to produce a costume for a witch in 'The Scottish Pay'.
Inspiration for the design came from many sources revolving around a spider's web. I discovered spider web patchwork in a lovely book called The Quilters Block Bible by Celia Eddy.

The idea of the poncho came from the shape of the spider's web design and evolved from there.

I really enjoyed making this project and am extremely proud of the quality of finish. Taking inspiration from this make I am now working on making a skirt based on the spider web patchwork design.
