A Swap for All Seasons Mini Fabric Collage
Linda dreamed up another swell swap for us this winter at A Swap for All Seasons...mini fabric collages. I've seen loads of these in all sorts of styles all over the internet and on some of my favorite blogs but I'd never tried one myself. My sewing skills have always been a little lacking but thankfully weren't taxed too much here. I've called this little piece Jolly Girl. I downloaded this photo ages ago and love the little smile on her face. When we exchanged emails my swap partner Liz told me that the colors yellow and orange always bring a smile to her face. So, I gathered some fabrics with those colors, added some canvas, some vintage dotted swiss (is that still made anymore?) some old buttons, orange pom pom trim and a little wire hanger and there she is....the Jolly Girl. I checked with Liz to see if she preferred being surprised or seeing photos of the collage ahead of time and she said it was okay to post photos. I hope she likes it! I had so much fun making this I think I may just have to make another! Thanks Linda for always dreaming up these great swaps for us. Be sure to stop by A Swap for All Seasons to see more of the mini fabric collages.
