fabric collage, cotton and polycotton scraps, buttons, ribbon

finished size 30 x 30 cms (12″ square approx.)

My first attempt in textile art design. For me, letting go and experimenting has always been a challenge – I’m one of those people who collect stuff and never use it because it may come in handy in still a better project.

I started by piecing together a base fabric, then added random scraps from my stash and some short bits of gift ribbon and threw in some buttons. The border is made from a length of selvedge, cut freehand.
