I always have trouble deciding what board to post my randomness on... so I decided on "Home Sweet Home" since its technically a decoration.

I made this for my niece's 16th birthday present, and it turned out to be one of my favorite creations!!

I pieced together some random fabric scraps... had some of our favorite pictures printed in wallet size... sewed them on... then added embellishments such as buttons, bows, ribbon, silk flowers, shapes cut from fabric, made some random stitches with embroidery floss, and Viola!! a photo collage wall hanging Smiley















the one in the red glasses is me!!

Thanks for looking!!

This is really cute!
Were you able to sew straight onto photo paper or did you have to do something to it to make it stable?

i pretty much just sewed the pictures directly onto the fabric... i used a dot of hot glue just hold the picture in place until it was sewed on...

This is too cool!  I love the thread you used to sew on the pictures.
