Fabric Collage

I have been doing few small craft projects over last couple of months. These couple of collage pieces turned out better than, I thought they would be.






Reversible summer scarf made using cotton saree pieces. I have worn it few times already.




Inspiration for this stump work portrait is Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's.  What do you think of her ?

I have completed all the blocks that needed a pattern. Each block will have a different paisley design. Now, all that is left is, to quilt everything together.

Phone book makeover..


I still carry a phone with me.  It started to fall apart and, I was not sure if I wanted to start a new book all over again. So, this weekend I finally, I did a make-over using fabric and, a small embroidered piece. I happy with my effort.

Learning crewel wool embroidery

Babushka


A small piece practiced with crewel wool. I bought these wool, some from the thrift-store and, the others from, when they have our annual neighbourhood church sales.  I do not have lots of colour selection, but I tried my best to match.

Using acrylic paint, I added details to her face and, some parts of her dress.

Another attempt on a stump-work portrait...


I did complete this few weeks ago but did not get chance to take pictures as I was away. I like the way her dress turned out.


Sri Lankan handloom...





I took a small break from work to visit my mum and, to spend time with her...I am always sad when it is time to say good-bye. But I need to get back to work and, life on the other side of the ocean.
