Sewing inspired art collage

Mod Podge pattern piece canvasI love covering things with leftover clothing patterns – remember the gift box I did a few years ago? You can always get fabric patterns like this inexpensively at the thrift store, or you can use any of those leftover from a project you did. Either way, this art is great on a budget and uses up a lot of items in your stash. It was created by my friend Cathie Filian for Plaid, and I can see a wall of different types of art like this. I would also love to receive one as a gift, wouldn’t you? Find the complete instructions here.

    Oh gosh, this is awesome. I have some old patterns that were in a trunk from my Grandmother’s house. I have held onto them since she died in the late 1980s because I didn’t know what to do with them, but now, I think I might dig them out. Thank you for making me think outside the box!

    So cute. Mod Podge does rock. It rocks so much that I have gone through 3 1/2 containers in the last 3 days with my art camp. Yikes. Can you say “peely fingers?” :)

    awesome – i was collecting patterns for the awesome pics on the packet but didn’t even think of the actual patterns! Sometimes I wonder if my brain is fully functional! Thanks for sharing!

    If someone made ME this, I would be totally happy! Yeah, like that is [not] going to happen. But a girl can dream, can’t she? I’m going to go a diggin’ into my stash and find a pattern to play with. Thanks for the inspiration!
