Everyday Objects Tell My Story

Everyday Objects Tell My Story
If you've been following along, you know I've been working on a series of sketchbook pages with the theme of everyday objects. And you know I started a fabric piece, in the way I work doing one piece at a time.

It's complete! It measures 34 x 15.5" and frankly, I'm quite pleased with it.
(I know you're going to ask, I got the giant safety pins here.)

Notice the teeny tiny buttons I sewed in the lace.

  2. It's very pretty. I love all the ephemera and the soft colors. I'm really drawn to the black line lately too, whether it be pen, brush or thread.

    We drink the same tea too, and I always save the tags and packets.

  3. I like the way this turned out, love the details, like the tea bag label. Glad to see you have loyal consultants to assist in all you do.

  4. Nice.
    One question: How do you prevent the paper from tearing when you sew it to the cloth? Doesn't the machine stitch cause perforations?

  5. I also love this - the idea and the finished piece! I really want to use stitch/sewing in my artwork, but I haven't yet 'taken the plunge'. But reading your blog is such an inspiration. ~Sara

  7. Love it, Jane! All those soft browns and wonderful sketches came together so nicely. (And yes, I was going to ask about the safety pin - lol!)

  8. This is nice! I don't think you plan the sizes as you go, or do you? They always seem to go together so well. How do you do that?
    PS--I bought new shoes today for San Miguel and dyed the laces. I am feeling very cool!

  12. This piece is a total delight!!!! I love every bit of it!! I especailly like how you added texture by stitching around the Coffee stained bits on the ticking- little touches like this make the piece extra specail!!!!!!

  13. This is a great piece! I especially like how you have incorporated just the right bits of paper in each piece of the whole. Very effective.

  14. thanks everyone!!! this one was a labor of love. Missy, when you stitch paper you should have a longer stitch or zigzag--neither of which I do! :-) My philosophy, if the paper tears, it tears...
    Nancy, no, I don't plan out the sizes of things. When the time comes to put them together, I move them around, crop some, and quickly make another piece if I have a blank spot on the composition.
