Week Nine- Embroidery with Cassette Tape

The challenge material for the month of February was discarded cassette tapes, so this is one of the projects that came from that burst of inspiration.  I used the cassette tape as my embroidery thread which gave the project a shiny effect.

My first attempt with using the cassette tape as embroidery thread was a craft fail.  I had assumed I would need a loosely woven material as the background in order for the thread to pass through.  My first project was done on a discarded burlap coffee sack.   The thread ended up looking messy.  When I tried again with this lightweight canvas material, the cassette tape ended up looking and behaving more like embroidery thread.
