Garden Muse Fabric Collage

Fabric Collage - 18" x20" By Mary Maki Rae -2010 (c)
*******************************************
What a Joy to surround this Dreamy Summer Garden Muse with the many pieces of mostly neutral-colored Florals - Velvets - and Silks that I've saved from other projects.
These in turn are over-layed with woven fabric trims - intricate laces - silk ribbons and mother-of-pearl vintage Buttons.
Then atop all - Hand Embroidered Decorative Stitches.
The finished piece could become a Decorative Pillow - or begining section of a quilt - or even a part of "just the right" upholstered piece of Furniture (chair or settee) - I haven't decidied which yet.

The Technique used in the Fabric Collage shown above - translated well into the Decorative and Practical Fabric Tote Bag. To me the Collage looks like a little boat or whimsical Hat ready to set off on a trip somewhere.



This type of Ticking is great to use for Sewing up a Sampler of your Favorite Decorative Stitches - to always have on hand - It provides a nice guideline-!
