Small Fabric Pieces : Three

In August 2021 I put some time into making little fabric artworks. I used the technique I followed for much of the time I made fabric art for sale back inthe 1990’s and early 2000’s. For a full explanation, look here at this post I wrote about a large hanging I created not too long ago.

Short version: I adhere pieces of fabric to a canvas fabric background using stitching, either regular stitching with the machine or free-motion machine stitching. That’s it!

I’ve got several of these little images to show you and I’ll do so in a short series of posts.

Sometimes things don’t go right and I end up with an incoherent or just plain ugly piece. But there are always sections I like. The solution? I just cut the ugly parts away and end up with smaller works that now I like to look at all parts of them.

Here are two such images. The smaller one is about 3″ x 3″; the larger one is about 7″ x 3″.

      Thank you. I know, there is something about a long neck that I like a lot, too. Another of those proportion things that I cannot explain why they please my eye but they do and then I find I try to incorporate them in all kinds of places.

      Thank you. I try to clip threads but my eyesight is iffy on that subject in the best of times and right now even worse, in fact I clipped my finger thinking I was getting right up next to a thread. Eek.
