Fabric From Paper

photographs of three fabrics made from paper for art quiltingI just wanted to share with you some fabrics I am making from paper. These are three different ones. I may continue to layer more onto them. As I am not sure if I am happy with all the results. I am learning how to create these art fabrics from paper when they dry the results vary & may need changing. After the fabric is made then to create an art quilt from them. I hope to have time to work on more this week. I will show you the progress as I go along.
Have you ever tried making your own fabric? or creating an art quilt?

Today I am trying to complete my snowmen for a contest from Styrofoam & The DYI Dish I have to complete them today and photograph them. I promise to share. If you haven't seen them you can hop over to my other blog and see their bases in progress. They are almost ready now. The final touches, staging and photos next! Busy, busy creating and cleaning up messes~
But it sure is fun! What projects are you working on?


  1. O my gosh - these are gorgeous Theresa! Will have to check out the other blog for more. Have done some reading on this technique, but have not tried it yet. Thanks for the inspiration:)

  2. Thank you Theresa. Since this is my first time with the technique I am still in experiment stage. I hope to set up a space to do this again soon as it is a messy, fun art form. I will post more as I go along & also show when I go onto the next steps of quilting on them. I can't wait to share more! Do try it is really fun & easier than you think.

  3. This looks fabulous! How exciting to create your own fabric and make an art quilt!! Looking forward to seeing the result!
