This Fast Friday Fabric Challenge had the theme “Word Play”, and I chose words that relate to my love of gardening and my stash of leafy and flowering fabrics. I’m generally a vegetable gardener, but that was simply too many letters! The word “flower” has the same number of letters as “garden” so that each flower letter could grow out of a garden letter. I pulled out various of my appropriately floral and leafy fabrics for the letters and put them against a couple brown earthy fabrics.
My art work is mounted on foam core, with the fabric wrapped around to the back. I actually stitch through the foam core (it’s not hard, I just use a thin needle!), and use pebble beads to avoid the dimples that otherwise form in the fabric, and regular beads in the upper part.
