Fabric Collages

After I posted my fabric collage a while back someone commented that these can be very addicting. Well, they were right.  I've been making these at breakneck speeed -- and I am amazed that I am enjoying the hand stitching.  I find it very relaxing  Who knew!



  (An update on Pam -- have heard from her and she is fine.  Although tornadoes passed much, much
too close to her.)

What sweet and beautiful collages Louise! Your hand stitching really gives these such a soft, shabby chic look. Glad to hear Pam is ok. Have a great day.

Hugs,

Very beautiful! I love to hand stitch as well and try to incorporate stitching in a lot of my art journal pages. Are you printing the images on fabric squares?

This are exquisite, Louise! I absolutely loooove these vintage images with the touches of lace, stitching, vintage buttons -all of the best goodies. Thanks for sharing, and for letting us know Pam is unharmed, thank goodness!!!

Looks like you are putting that lace we bought in AL to good use:) These are all so sweet and are sure to be a big seller for you at the craft shows.

Hi Louise...i'm sorry it's been so long since my last visit here, really i've missed so many gorgeous and inspiring projects. The fabric collages are exquisite and those "chunky ATCs"...fabulous!
so happy you heard from your friend in AL and that she is okay.
blessings for the coming week~

These are lovely - so delicate. I'll be in big trouble if I start stitching these - I won't be able to stop. How perfect for wedding and baby gifts!

These are very nice and, as Robin mentioned already, shabby chic. I love the chunky ATC's! Are they solid or hollow inside?
