And here are my button fairies:
About the time I found FAT, I read an article by the leader of FAT, Normajean Brevik, where she was talking about inchies. Inchies are little one inch square art pieces, which can be done in many different mediums, but her article was talking about fiber art inchies. So I started exploring different techniques in fiber art, and making different batches of inchies.
First, I made a batch where I fused fabric to a background, then laid organza over it and machine quilted the surface. Here are those inchies:
...and here are some hair pins I made from them with some beading added:
Next, I took some black and white print fabric for the background and made some inchies where I couched some fancy yarn onto the surface of them:
I have not done anything with those yet , but I think they are very interesting.
Stay tuned for my next installment, where I will play with Angelina fibers and maybe some picture transfers to fabric!
