First Fabric Collage

This is the first fabric collage I completed after taking KC's collage camp class.  I never really could sew, so this was a real learning experience for me.  It was very enjoyable and KC's online class videos teach you everything you need to know to create a beautiful fabric collage.  If you hurry, you can join the online class for only $54 instead of the regular price of $75.

WOW! This is fantastic!!! I'm inspired to try fabric collage now! :)

Suz said...

That is a gorgeous collage! I have looked at the collage camp and I am not a very good seamstress but I would love to be able to do fabric collage.

I found your blog by going to a cute stamping blog. Your comment was right above mine. Come and visit our blog, if you would like. My daughter gave me the blog about four months ago as a gift. We make jewelry together but this is not all about jewelry, as we do a million things!!!
