Fabric Wall Hanging

The Challenge for this coming Monday in my local craft group is to create something in sepia colours,I have been wanting to get back to fabric and lace,this is what i came up with,took me all day yesterday I did enjoy myself though :) Its layered onto felt using pieces of lace i had in my stash but had to spray dye with Sticky Fingers walnut,the image is tranfered through my printer with freezer paper,thats the only way i can get a decent image,god knows how my printer survives this lol..........the medalions at the bottom I cut off an old top before throwing it away(recycling lol).I used alcohol inks on the key.When finished i backed it onto hardboard 8"x8" not forgetting to put the ribbon in between first for hanging!

This is so lovely, Pattie. I am really pleased you're getting back into your textile art, despite the shoulder issues.

Such a gorgeous piece - I just love everything about it.

Very beautiful! Hope your shoulder is healing. To create art in spite of your pain is medicine for heart and soul.

This is a beautiful piece! Love the addition of the key and medallions at the bottom. Hope you are having a great weekend.
