After I did these greeting cards out of fabric, I got a bit obsessed over doing more fabric collages. Here's a little bit more experimentation. This little tea guy is about 4 x 4 inches. (nothing too big so I don't feel like I am wasting fabric.)

Here is the sketch I did, its cool to see how it got translated.
And its so easy in Illustrator to break up the shapes, print it out and voila- you have a pattern!

PS Loved your pirate piece as well but I'm feeling like a "gusher" lately so tried to refrain from overdoing on the comments.

What a fun idea! That turned out really well...I'd like to try doing something like that sometime.

I'm working on some fabric journal covers right now and could really see your designs working in this way. Have you considered selling versions for sketchbooks/etc? Darling, color smart and so designey.

Thank you, everyone!

Crystal, I definitely feel shy about selling my craft stuff because I still consider myself a beginner sewer. I hope one day I will! :-) Would love to see your fabric journals!
