Little houses - fabric art

a picture made with fabric, thread and paint

in a white box-frame which can be hung or free-standing
Size: 25x25cm (10x10”) depth: 4.5cm

my images begin on a piece of canvas—materials added are recycled/upcycled from clothes, tablecloths, off-cuts and fabrics I’ve been given, or have used for past projects
- this one has some crochet made by my Grandma (many years ago)

the process is quite a layered procedure; drawing, machine-embroidery, free-motion-embroidery, hand sewing, adding fabric and painting

I pad the houses and steam the finished image, before framing

while working, I’m hoping that someone will like the quirky little cottages, and that it will remind them of a holiday, a place they know, or a place they would like to be—and that hanging on the wall, or standing on a shelf it will bring them joy
