Antique Postcard Fabric Transfer Creations


I promised an update on my newest design and here it is.....I love antique Victorian postcards and got a wonderful cd of images that I can now transfer to a special fabric which can then be made into all sorts of lovely things. I was really thinking Mother's Day for these little beauties and you can find these right now in my Ebay auctions. They are very unique and a lovely way to show off old Victorian postcards.

A little about my textile art.....

My vintage fabric collages combine my love of vintage textiles and my love of words. Words are powerful and a beautiful phrase can evoke such emotion. My collage designs are built around the wise words of an old poet or author, which I handstitch in a simple lettering. I use vintage fabrics, laces, buttons, etc...all handstitched in a unique way to mirror the words - there is always a little mystery with the finished product, but if you look closely you will see the simple beauty of the words reflected in the design. I collect old vintage frames throughout the year to frame each collage in. Below is a sampling of some of my pieces....
