This project is part of my technical studies at university. I was getting familiar using the sewing machine and making darts in the fabric, this shapes the fabric to create a particular angle, in this case a curved line for a banana. It started from dicing the paper shell of the banana and enlarging the puzzle-like pieces, then transferring them onto fabric. Using acrylic paint and emulation mixture I stamped a yellow and orange pattern, to give it a banana colour. Once all sides where stitched I unfolded the fabric so its not inside out, and begun to stuff it with a soft poly-cotton, then hand stitched the whole.
