I bought a scarf thing (too large for a hankie, too small for neck or hair, very odd) a while ago because I loved the fabric so much. I've made a bunch of these inchies from it so far, but I just photographed a few. I think I'm going to make some into a faux insect colection with pins in them, a bit like my faux egg collection Cheesy



I stitched the fabric to paper on my machine, going randomly between the insects, and then cut out and glued them to firmer card before inking up the sides Smiley

What a great idea!  Hmmm.  Inchies seem like fun.  I may have to try some.

Great way to repurpose such a fun fabric piece!  They look like little tiles...

Thank you!

I can't decide if I should add pins to them in this little collection or leave the poor things be Cheesy

hhhmmm.... putting pins and guilding the rose...

that depends if you want to leave them more like inchies, or turn them into a sort of nature collection, like the eggs.

They'd look great both ways.
