Project #2: Fabric collage
What you will need:
*1- board (cardboard, masonite, plywood) 8 x 10 in.
*note* –a lot of glue makes the cardboard pucker and bend
*variety of fabric scraps – heavy and light weight fabrics – patterned fabric
*white glue + old brush for glue
*yarn, rope, chord and scissors
This project is a great way to use fabric scraps without any sewing
..if you like – before you begin you can make a few drawings your image can be a landscape, an animal, a person or something abstract.
..cut out your fabrics and lay them out and arrange them the way you want...I think frayed edges are nice so don’t worry about making nice clean edges.
..glue down your fabric collage – putting glue on top of the fabric helps to keep the fabric flat.
as a final step...you can use the yarn or rope to create outlines around your shapes or as nice linear elements.
