Of all the projects I sew, small collages like this one have to be the most fun.
These serendipitous, spur of the moment creations bring together lots of odd (but favorite) bits and pieces, and they’re easy to start and finish in an evening.
This collage, which hangs on my sewing room door, was inspired by two things: my favorite quote (torn from a magazine) and some well-used letter stencils that turned up for sale at the Scrap Exchange. (Yes, you can sew paper to fabric as long as you don’t plan to wash your project.)
Instead of starting with a finished size in mind, I work out, creating the core design, then stitching it to a larger canvas and adding as I go.
The pocket was an after thought, but a very nice place for one of the vintage sewing cards from my collection.
Door knob art and a crafty showcase for a favorite quote– What do you think?
