The fabric tags from Dawn arrived the other day and they are fantastic! I don't know what I'm going to do without some swap stuff coming in. I absolutely LOVE doing swaps. The creative process, the packaging, the getting GOODIES back. It's all the things I love... Speaking of things that I love, I love the tags that I received.
Although they were all wonderful, I've included a couple pics of ONE of my MANY favorites;). Martha made this one and the reason why I like it so much is it represents where I would like to get to with my fabric art. The base fabric was a great choice, she used that technique where the stitching from the sewing machine can move freely (I KNOW there's a name for the technique and a special foot for the sewing machine but I can't remember the name for the life of me right now) and she incorporated some images that were printed(?) on to a transparency. Love it! Nice job Martha!
This is my fabric tag. I'm not a complete sewing novice but I'm trying to adopt more mixed-media techniques into fabric work. I don't usually work like this but it was an eye opening experience and just the right amount of challenge. I'm a little limited by not knowing too much about all the different products available to people that make art this way. It was great fun and I plan to try to do more in the future. A SPECIAL NOTE for anyone that got one of my tags... Did you happen to notice the button? Don't buttons unbutton? Look closely at my tag and see if there isn't a little something extra there. :) I don't know... Maybe the 'Secret' in my 'Secret Garden' tag was a little too obvious...or people will never figure it out! If you do let me know!
