This is a birthday card for a friend and fellow crafter, it now resides in a frame on her dining room wall. I use fabric off cuts and recycle fabrics from clothing, curtains etc. The pieces are cut from differing fabrics and to add texture and detail I also used recycled buttons, beads and sequins. All pieces are glued to the base fabric, the stitched in black cotton thread to add outline detail. With this card I have stitched the fabric to a 6x6 kraft card to avoid the base fabric fraying. Im just getting started with machine stitched art and this is not intended to look perfect I was going for a shabby chic looo. I use Dovecraft Ultimate Glue as it lets me be precise, dries quickly, dries clear and it’s my favourite.
