Here are a few of things I made as a result of an attempt to clear out the contents of my "box" of handmade fabrics, soy silk, painted canvas, etc.
I've been working on a big quilt for Sal and when I get bored with that, it's fun to take a break and work on some smaller things.
Almost everything here is made from fabric that I made myself using water the water soluble stabilizer method, hand felted fabric or soy silk fabric that I learned to make in a workshop last summer.
Making fabric with water soluble stabilizer is so easy and it really makes for some interesting projects. Let me know if you're interested in a tutorial and I'll think about putting one up.
These are all small pieces (the fat inchies measure about 1.5" and the hearts are about 3" across) that will be used as jacket and/or tote pins, gift tags (they make really pretty gift tags) and embellishments for journals, etc.
I've also been visiting your blogs quite a bit lately and there is some really great stuff going on out there. I have you guys linked over on my beside bar under "Feeds my Soul" because that's exactly what you do - feed my soul with your vision and your writing and your spirit: Carolyn and her artistic take on the world and its beauty, Katie and her watercolors, Acey's stitching, stories and wisdom, Lisa and her stunning beading, Mary and her humor (and stitching when she gets around to it!), Andrea and her Parisian characters and adventures, Jude and her Spirit Cloths and Jeanne with her stories and beautiful quilting -- you girls continue to inspire and enlighten me every day!
Thanks for That! Really.
