Thank you so much for the kind words everyone!

Amazing! These would be a fortune if they were being sold at Anthropologie!

I have never heard about Anthropologie (I'm Norwegian) but someone would have to offer me a substantial amount for me to even think about parting with them. They were a lot more timeconsuming than they might seem Smiley

I have that mexican woman fabric too. Grin

Thanks a lot Smiley
Didn't really know how to use the mexican lady when I first got her. But she turned out to be one of my favourite motives, and used for several projects.

Those are striking!  Are the birds machine appliqued?

Thanks Smiley
First i fastened the birds with some fusible web and then I sewed around them with regular stitches.

These pictures were made a few years ago. I really like them, but sadly they are very time consuming so I haven't had time to make one for a long time.

The first one is of my dad and his dog. It was a gift for his birthday.



This one is in more of a pop art style.



It might not seem like it, but both styles are very time consuming. The first one with the requires little preparation, I just draw the image on to the canvas. The timeconsuming bit is finding the colors and gluing it on. The time consuing bit of the "pop art" one is the drawing. I don't remember how many sketches I had to make but it was plenty. its very easy to "loos a person" when you remove most of the facial features. Since the colored areas are fewer and bigger its easier to glue on the paper on these images.

These are two of my colorful pillows with application. They are made of different pieces of scraps, curtains, tablecloths, tapestry and ribbons. As a finish, I appliqued a bird sitting on a branch on each of them.

Thank you all so much for the kind words.

I know my color choice isn't for everyone, but i like strong colors and i like contrast Think i got plenty of both in this bag Smiley

I used interfacing to make it sturdy, but sadly it wasn't heavy enough. My original plan was to close it with a zipper, but due to my inexperience I could not quite figure out how to do it without crumpling the ribbon. So I went with a magnetic button instead, and the weight of it makes the top edge of the bag fall over.
