Have fun creating fabric collages in a 5" x 7" card format and in larger, frameable pieces. Using fabric, Wunder Under© and an iron, let your imagination run wild. Images may be realistic, whimsical, or abstract. Let the color and pattern of the fabric be your guide. Try free motion stitching over the collages to add details.
