So I made this thing.....

and I really like it.  Especially since I actually took needle and thread to fabric and sewed on it.  SomethingI've avoided doing like the plague because to me it infers housework.   But my question is:  What do you call it?  Any ideas?

It's a mixed media collage wall hanging!!! And a very nice one!
I need to do more sewing on my stuff cause I really like the look of it. Good job.
And it's only housework if you aren't enjoying it...

I'd call it gorgeous! *smiles* I'd say it's a beautiful hanging, waiting to adorn a guest's door or a small spot on a wall near a bedside table. Love it!

This is gorgeous....I would call it a Wallhanging. Looks great no matter what name you give it:)
You could just call it "Thing"...or "A brown and beige thing I made that you can hang anywhere"

I'd call it a mixed media collage and you most definitely should do more of them! The combinations, composition, and overall vintage feel are wonderful - even the sewing ;-)

Louise, the "handle" on this lovely piece looks like some old French bag carriers that I have. What did you use? I was looking at mine today, wondering what exactly to do with it. Now I think I have an idea!

If you want you can email me at pr31ov to answer.

Thanks!
