Recycled Paper Fabric

There are such beautiful colourful fabrics found in the Boden catalogue. Well my purse won't stretch to buying something from here so I've done the (next?) best thing and cut it up!


Mwa haha! Now they shall be mine!!All mine!

I love Boden prints too Jessie, but agree they are pricey. But Ive got to say they are excellent quality! They seem to have hit just the right shapes with just the right fabrics. If only the premium bonds would come up..... I love the collage. Are you turning it into fabric???

Jessie said...

I'm waiting for the sale so I can afford something! No, I wouldn't know how to turn it into fabric, is there a way?

I love it!! First of all, I'd never heard of them and just requested their catalog. I like pretty catalogs... And I love how you used all the pretty colors and patterns in your art. Gorgeous!! :) Silke

Very clever especially under economic strain! Creativity rules.

Rosie said...

That made me laugh. I thought you were going to turn it into papier mache. Have you see the "Spooflower" site? You can design your own fabric there.

Some kind of gel medium transfer.
Youtube as some video's on transferring ink patterns onto material.
Love the fish, so cute!

Hugs!

This piece can be turned into fabric by uploading it to Spoonflower.Com and printing your own yardage.
