We all have treasured items in our lives, that we wished we could somehow incorporate and display them into pieces of art that would reflect cherished memories.

In this class, I will show you how I have taken, clothing, photos and trinkets and recycled them into pieces of art. My love of fabrics, will have you pulling and recycling clothing in a whole new way.

I will show you how to use and display photos in a whole new light or how about, creating a pocket banner, that would allow you to tuck special trinkets inside for safe keeping. In this class, you will be making 3 individual pieces, that can be used as a banner or wall hangings.

  • Basic tool kit:Scissors, ruler, pliers, wire cutters, black permanent ink pad, (I use Stazon Ink pad).

  • pencil....(OPTIONAL) This is only if you are wanting to dothe painted collage piece on Banner 2. I used a variety ofdifferent paints that I had on hand in my studio. Golden fluid acrylics and liquitex paints. I would recommend you trying what you have on hand, before going out and purchasing anything.
  • Image...I have supplied one for you, but if you are not wanting to use this, then you will need have one.
  • Printer fabric sheets....I use Jacquard inkjet fabric sheets. You will need to have fabric sheets that are made to go through your printer. So, if you have a laser printer, then you will need to have laser fabric sheets. If your printer does not have permanent inks, you will then need to seal your image with a spray sealer, so the inks donít bleed. I purchase mine from our local craft store. Here is where
  • you can find some....
  • Ribbon or fabric strips...I used Sari ribbon for my piece.
  • Here is the link to where I purchase mine from, , Lisa Jurist.
  • Sewing machine and thread...these can be sewn by hand, but keep in mind that it will take longer in completing your projects.
  • Thread and needle...your choice of color and thickness of thread that you are wanting to incorporate into your pieces.
  • Embellishments...(OPTIONAL) This is only if you are wanting to add any to enhance your piece. I used the following in mine:
  • Birds moss, burlap garland, feathers, vintage papers,
  • driftwood pieces, beads, charms, safety pins, rusty chain,
  • wire, buttons, vintage doll pieces, flowers, If you choose to
  • incorporate a metal container, you will need the
  • appropriate tool to drill holes through it.
  • Fabrics...this is going to be a preference thing. Depending on the look that you are wanting, will determine what fabrics that you are incorporating. I used the following pieces to create mine: Recycled jeans from my kidís clothing, blouses and skirts from the thrift stores, vintage clothing from antique stores,flea markets, ebay or etsy, fabrics pieces from my local fabric stores
