Bag in progress
This fabric collage is going to be a bag but I think this technique would work well for wall pieces too. The fabrics are nearly all just dyed cottons except for a couple of silk bits & some knitting yarns. The richness of the fabric is built up with free machine embroidery, built in decorative stitches & applique using variegated cotton or rayon threads.
The next one I do might be a wall piece.

This would look great as a wall piece.

What a great idea. I, too, save everything and need ideas to use the stuff. It is color sorted but mixed types. The bag is nice. Sandy in La Center
