So I was farting around with an idea last night. I remember trying this years ago and never finishing. I dont know where I got the idea but here it is.
Basically you take a large piece of freezer paper and start sewing scraps on it with the wax side up. When you iron it the wax sticks to the fabric a little and the stiffness of the paper keeps the whole thing stable.
I just sewed and sewed shaped on it. At one point I sewed strips of fabric together (not on the freezer paper) then cut them, reversed every other one and then sewed them back together kinda like quilt piecing but without matching the seams.. then I put that at the bottom.
My goal was not to be too picky about seams or stitches or to get OCD about the whole thing but to just go with it and have fun and use whatever mistakes came up. I started this on my WalMart Brother PRW CE5000 (of which I have nicknamed The B!tch) and I finished it on my Janome Thread Banger. Needless to say I am a happy camper and the B!tch is in the closet.
Anyway.... then I just added stitching and some buttons. A bit of applique with some strips of tulle and ribbon and WAH LAH.... My little wall hanging. :-D
