I have watched a couple of Craftsy class on new techniques for art quilting and making artsy fabric to make totes, eye glass cases, stuff like that.  I really like Craftsy classes because they are video classes and you get to watch them whenever.  And Craftsy managed to get quite a collection of good teachers who do online classes very well.

The first class is called Stitch and Slash it involves layer four pieces of fabric, stitching designs in the layers and cutting through to different layers.  Here are my two projects I've finished so far:

 I call this Hawaiian Skies.  I embellished and beaded it, of course.

This one is done on a foundation of "fabric" which consists of little pieces of leftovers I ironed on a piece of interfacing.  I cut through all the layers of fabric to show the different parts of the composite at the bottom.
I call this Flea Market Find :  It's also beaded and embellished.

Finally, I took the Craftsy class Stupendous Stitching . 
That class is all about embellishing fabric to create really neat art fabric you can display as art or make things out of.
Here's my first piece:

Here are some close ups:

I'll definitely make more of both kinds of projects.  I have one Stitch and Slash projects in progress.  Pictures later!
