Fabric collage

I was at home alone on Sunday evening, and suddenly felt an urge to sew something... I didn't plan ahead at all, I just sort of went with the flow. Here's what happened:

A little fabric collage entitled Nature. It's just a basic log cabin design, embellished with all sorts of notions, vintage lace, and a bit of embroidery. I had lots of fun making it!

A close-up of the center. The tree is printed with a hand-carved stamp I received in a Craftster swap. I made a bunch of fabric patches this summer (read more here) and this is one of them. The stamp itself was carved by the talented Craftster knitting_nyxxie. The birdie is an inkjet transfer.

The finished piece is about 16" square. It's a bit wonky since I didn't measure anything, but I like it that way. Here it is hanging on our living room wall:


  1. I'm really into mini art quilts right now too. I love the rawness of yours! Not measuring and just sewing is fantastic sometimes, I think. Just lets you play with materials and then something amazing comes out. Lovely.

  2. Hej! Tack för besöket och kommentaren hos mig :-)
    Denna lilla quiltie / fabric collage är ju hur gulligt som helst! Är det första föröket så får man verkligen gratulera ! Fortsätt så! Vet du jag tror att du är mycket friare i ditt skapande när du inte lanerar för mycket, bara skapar av hjärtans lust. Och många som "kan" traditionell lappteknik är så fast i regler så dom vågar aldrig "kasta loss", och det syns också !

  3. Hej! Vilket fint alster! ...och vilken bra idé att skriva på engelska! (fast det tror jag inte mina svenska vänner skulle gilla... ;-)) Hälsa gärna på hos mig! kram, sarah

  4. Very pretty! Looks great on your wall.

  5. Love the fabric collage! That stamp is awesome.

    Thank you for the comment on my blog, I appreciate it! :)

  6. I love it I love it I love it! You have to make more. Isn't it amazing what comes out of a night to yourself and some spontaneity? I do hope you make more and take pictures of them. This one is great.

  7. haha ja jag tror det är fullmåne på gång. Igår såg den iallafall ut som en stor ost. Coolt litet strykjärn förresten! Hälsningar från skogarna i smålandet :)
