Fabric picture

I've been wanting to experiment with making a fabric picture for a while now and when the urge to be creative came over me last night this is what I did.

The picture is made entirely from curtain fabric samples.  I didn't have a pattern for any of the shapes.  I cut everything freehand and basically made up the design as I went along.  I love the way this piece of work isn't too precious, it's very rustic with threads and fraying all on display. 

Here is a closer look at the owl.  

I love the ruffles on his chest. 
  This is my first attempt at a fabric picture and I'm fairly happy with the result.  I was having so much fun I stayed up until 1.30 this morning to finish it.  I might be having a Nana nap or two today.  Zzzzzzzzz.


  1. Hello Anne,
    Nice to meet you. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. It's how we get to know eachother isn't it?
    I think you've done very well with your first fabric picture. Are you going to frame it?

  2. Hi Helsie,
    Thanks for visiting. I don't know what to do with the picture as I made it just for fun. I get sooo inspired from all the lovely people in blog land, an idea pops into my head and off I go.
    I'm working on another which is nearly finished and will post soon. Don't know what to do with that either. :-)



Thank you for leaving a comment.
