Project #2: Fabric collage

Wednesday, 16 January 2008 by Irene Hoofs

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
step one:
..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.
step two:
..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.
step three:
..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.
