Scraps

I made a bunch of flowers out of scraps of fabric.


I'm not sure whether I should hang them on my walls, make them into fun pins, or just use them to decorate Moo!

Wow. If this is what you can do with scraps.. You must do amazing things with new fabric!

I went to a creative writing class the other day and the instructor had on the loveliest fabric flower ring ever. I've been looking all over for them. Maybe you could make some.

How did you curl the petals?

Fantastically creative use of scraps! Moo seems quite used to bits of fabric on her bod...maybe it's happened before?

I came across your blog through Cup of Jo and it is my new favorite thing in the world. Your art/photographs/videos/projects are so inspiring!

p.s. Moo is so cute I almost want to print out a picture of him for my fridge.

Where do you come up with all these creative ideas? I love this one so much I'll probably try making some of my own at some point.

PS. The flower in the second picture is my favourite!

I don't think you realize how beautiful your blog really is. I have been reading it for about two months and it instantly cheers me up. I once took hours just to back track and read your previous posts. You have inspired my friends and I to have art days. Now we paint, sew, draw, or just paint eachother! Thank you. You are inspiring.

I had a cat that looked a little like Moo. We named him Bovi because his markings looked cow-like or bovine. I have a photo of him on my blog http://erinjoi.blogspot.com/2009/02/02-04-09.html
Do you know if this type of marking is a breed or just a good mix?

They would make fantastic pins!

Piglet said...

They would make lovely brooches.
Or sewn onto a headband would be cute.
As for decorating a cat. Well I don't think he looks too impressed!

Lisa said...

They are so cheery and cute! They will look great whatever you decide on.

Since you have plenty of those flowers, why not use it for everything? Hahah.

MiJa said...

I spent the entire day yesterday visiting your blog, and smiled the entire time! You and your work sparkle with positivity and creativeness and it's very contagious! I have been going through a creative block for a few years now, and you and your work has motivated me to look at things in life a little differently! Just what I needed to get out of my rut! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!

Kate said...
