Showcasing my Itty Bitties.....




A while ago, I was making three by three fabric collages for a swap on Fabt Atc's one to one...I made ten sets and got nine sets in return by nine very talented women! I have been trying to think of a way to display them without putting them on a canvas. This is my solution...It was very easy to do except for pushing the little eyelets thru the fabric! My fingers are so sore it is hard to type. Thank gosh I got a cropodile to set the little buggers. My theme was garden and my preferred colors were pink and green though I was open to artists choice. Aren't they beautiful little pieces of scrumptious fabric art? Thanks to Scary Cheri, Sanna, Liz P., Marva, Lera, Debby W, Judy S, Denise, and Peggy R! If you click on the pics, you can see a close up!

Hi Melinda... I just love these ittie-bittie-teenie-tiny works of art... I'm esp. fond of the ones with the pink roses and the one with the tulips! So peaceful and sweet looking.

That made me smile... BIG! Only if you have time, Melinda, for I know how busy your life is... I'd be honored and thrilled to have one of your teeeeenieeeee ittie bitties! I just think they are the cutest things! You're a doll to offer!

Melinda - what a fantastic idea! Especially for your garden theme! I still have to make 2 for myself! And think of a way to show mine off, maybe I'll borrow your branch idea........ :) Marva

The bird and her nest are a nice compliment to the arrangement too. It all looks lovely together!
