Wild sewn cards

One of the the things about working in collage is that you end up with a lot of 'bits'
'Bits' of paper, 'bits' of papercloth, 'bits of organza..... 'bits in general!
I don't like waste and kept all my bits in a box, the box was getting fuller so I decided to make some cards with some of the scrap pieces.

Wild sewn cards...
All different, all unique...

Iv'e been on a mission and made loads!!


  1. What a wonderful use for all your bits, the cards are beautiful!

  2. gorgeous and inspiring work. They are beautiful!

  3. Your 'Wild Sewn' cards look amazing Morag! It's something I enjoy making too, so much nicer to give than a commercially printed card, and they can always be framed, so that always makes them extra special too.

  4. Such a great idea and so wonderfully original, I love them all so much!

  5. What a wonderful and thrifty way to use the bits and bobs that you've accumulated! I have many tins filled with things I'll use 'one day'! :) I love to see works of art made from unexpected places, yours are beautiful.

  6. Wow, that are some very unique cards! I always keep little leftovers of fabric too when I'm sewing, but I never in a million years would think about making cards out of it. These look fantastic!

  7. what a clever idea and they look fantastic - I'm sure they'll do really well in your local gallery.

  8. Wow, these are gorgeous! Well, what project of yours wouldn't be. Such many coloured sceneries in such a small format, yet very effective. Have you ever thought of submitting to Sew Somerset or Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazines, I wonder? They might love to have your work on their pages!


Thank you for stopping by, I love to hear from you.
