Photo Fabric Collage Book For My Sister

Here is a peek at the fabric book I made for my sister for her birthday.  It is filled with pictures of the two of us when we were children that I printed onto white cotton.  I added pockets to the pages to hold little notes of shared memories.  She loved it!

Apple Galette - Cute Apple Pie

This turns out great.  To make it easy, I used a pie crust from the refrigerator section of the grocery.  But you could make the pie crust in this recipe or make your own favorite pie crust recipe.  Be sure to use the parchment paper to save yourself a cleanup from the filling that escapes the pie.

Pretty Little Bluebirds Fabric Collage Wallhanging

I used a piece of the wonderful burned ceiling tin that I selvaged from a razed building here in Rineyville for the wall hanging. The tin is sewed to the wall hanging with glass beads that I added at each hole. The background fabric is part of a vintage towel. The pastel picture of bluebirds is from an old greeting card, and it is printed on white cotton.  It is sewn to a piece of cotton floral print. Embellishments include antique lace, white rick rack, mustard colored plastic buttons and plastic belt buckle.  I will be listing this in my Zibbet shop.  If you are not familiar with Zibbet, please take a minute to have a look.
