Summer Garden

Altered Jigsaw piece

I have called this "Summer Garden" as i,m into this fabric art now,I thought I would try altering a jigsaw piece with Fabric.

First to dye some cotton muslin trying to portray landscape colours with Brusho,making a template with felt from the jigsaw piece then sewing that to the muslin,cutting all all I had to do was sew the beads on before attaching the piece to the jigsaw bit........ummm I might do another its a bit fiddley,enjoyable though,makes a change from stitching books lol

Materials used=
white cotton muslin
Brusho for colouring fabric
Beads and buttons
gold wire for hanging at top
Old jewellery for hanging at bottom.
and of course a large childs Jigsaw Piece !

this is wonderful Pattie...the colouring you've achieved with the dyed background is perfect...wish my garden looked as summery, bright and pretty as this but it's all a bit washed out and wet at the moment. I love all the delicate stitch work...the flowers are so sweet it is a summer piece that makes you smile!
