Fabric collage and wavy scarf

While thumbing through the book Creative Awakenings , I came across this picture of fabric bowls made by
Lesley Riley . Aren't they amazing? The book even has instructions for making them. I think they're gorgeous.

I practiced making a couple of fabric collages this weekend. This collage is adhered to one of those teeny-tiny tote bags sold at Michael's for about a dollar. I used fusible webbing to create it, and then sealed it in Modge Podge .

The tag is paper and beads strung on yarn.

The bag was tough to photograph because the Modge Podge created a shiny surface. I made another one this afternoon and coated it with gel medium instead to see if that turns out more matte. It's still drying, but I should know soon.

Here is the wavy scarf I started in my short row class at Stitches a few weeks ago. I've cleverly hidden the end so you can't see it because the wave is all funky. I messed up the pattern and didn't notice for a while. So now I'm trying to decide whether to keep going or start over. I'll probably start over.

Hope you had a good weekend.
