The American Flag Sewn Style

This is a flag I made using my decorated papers and sewing it together.  The white stripes are made with fringe.

This isn't the nicest picture because it is gloomy outside today but wanted you to see the difference of inside versa outside.

This is it for today.   I have more to share but it will have to wait for another day.   Thanks for stopping by.

Next Project for Sewn Class

Well we could either make a big Pinwheel out of Vellum or a Memory Panel for this week's class so I chose the Memory Panel for now.   I am sure I will make a pinwheel sometime in the future.

This took me back to the days when I used to go to the Albuquerque International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.   I went there for many years and loved every minute of it.

This is a very large piece and I worked on it for two days.    It is very bright and cheerful and I remember all those balloons that are pictured on that piece.   It was sewn together and then cut up in pieces and then stitched up again.   I used my decorated papers and some of Teesha Moore's collage sheets (which I absolutely love).   Then I sewed on the balloon pictures which was a trick in itself considering the size of this piece.   Hurray, it is done and I must say that I love looking at it. 

The picture below was taken outside and wouldn't you know it, it was overcast today but it shows all the stitching done. 

I haven't decided what the next project will be but stayed tuned..........I will be back.

Sewing Up the Circles

Had a bunch of half circles that I cut out of my papers so thought I would sew them up and attach them together to hang up.   When hung up, they spin around showing the other colors on the opposite side.

Will be back for some more Sewn Fun.   Have a great week.

Playing Around With Paper

Another piece using Hexagon shapes.   I really didn't care for this piece at all until I did this and that to it......   Not my favorite, even now.

These squares were left over from something else so I decided to sew them together....could be used as a picture frame.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.   Now I need to decide what I am going to do for the next project that we were given today in our Sewn Class.

Chevron Designs This Time

There are so many possibilities in this class.........this time I made four pieces in a Chevron design.

All of the pieces put together.

Four different pieces.

Well that's it for today...........more later.  Thanks for stopping by.

Fly Away Little Kite

Just playing around with paper and the sewing machine and came up with this for Mary Ann's Sewn class.

And I probably used some of these papers to make this kite.     

Thanks for stopping by.   That's it for now.

More Fun With Fabric Paper

Had a little time today to play some more with Mary Ann's Sewn class which has been wonderful.

Some time ago, a good friend of mine, Sherry Goodloe,  picked up a lot of Teesha Moore's collage sheets for me when she went to the Carson Rubber Stamp Convention in Carson, CA.   I love Teesha's  work and was so excited when I received them.   Did I use knew I would because they were so beautiful.   I decided to cut a couple up and combine them with my own painted/inked/decorated papers.  This is what I ended up with.

At this point, I don't have any idea what I will use these for but all I can think of when I look  at them are "placemats"........not practical since they are paper but that is what comes to my mind when I look at them.   I am pleased at how they came out and will just continue to look at them and enjoy them.

Thanks for stopping by.
