Can you make a collage on fabric? Of course you can! In our collage workshop, fearless leader John showed us how. Here's the result.
This small pouch started as a long strip of white muslin. Paint came first, then layers of painted deli paper, attached using matte medium. After waiting a few days (!) for the fabric to dry, I folded it, punched holes along the edge and then sewed it using sari ribbon.
What goes in the pouch? A small handmade book, covered with more painted deli paper. I learned a new stitch for the outside spine -- the "tacket" stitch.The book was so fun to make that I had to make a second one.
