I made this chunky fabric page for a swap. I started by piecing together brightly colored cotton fabric in “quilting style”. I added some heart shaped buttons and a piece of black satin ribbon to make the butterfly. I added letter beads to spell “FLY HIGH” and some detail stitching to finish.
I used felt to pad the middle and backed the page with cotton fabric. I added a flowered ribbon to dress up the back. I added a small stitched piece of 14 ct. Aida fabric to add my info to the page.
I completed the page by using embroidery floss to do a dense blanket stitch around the edge and adding coordinating fibers.
I love the bright and happy colors used on this page!
I made this fabric chunky page for a swap. I stamped muslin with garden and flower related words to use as my background. I cut and appliqued the flower using embroidery floss and blanket stitch.
I found the cute little Georgia state image on another piece of fabric, and zig-zag stitched it to the back side.
Then I stitched a verse for the front and my name and info for the back side on Aida fabric and attached the pieces with a simple stitch around the border.
I can’t remember if I used felt or quilt batting to pad the middle … but I used embroidery floss to add stitches through the layers to “quilt it” a bit. I added the piped edge which I stitched around with white embroidery floss.
I then threaded some beads to matching purple yarn and safety pinned it to the back side as an extra touch of embellishment.
