Textile Tags

Recently I attended a workshop called Textile Tags at Littleheath Barn Studio run by Liske & Claire.  We were encouraged to rummage through their scrap bag to find fabrics to print on.

I chose the pinks and oranges and after printing on them with stamps and thermofax xscreens I tore them up and collaged bits onto a piece of fabric-backed bondaweb.

I did another A4 sheet starting with the blues and neutrals but added some colour when it looked too neutral.

I used my machine both with straight stitch and preprogrammed stitches

Then I machined shapes on the collaged fabric and cut them out.

I didn't like the shape of the one on the right so machined it again as a triangle.

I've still got some of the collaged fabric left.  Not sure whether I will make more tags or do something else with it.

Thanks for joining me today


  1. They look great Bernice. Welldone you. Love the colours too.

  2. That looks a fun workshop. I love the process but often don't know what to do with what I make. I like what you have done here - hopefully they will have a purpose rather than sit amongst stash like mind often end up.


I would love you to leave me an encouraging comment. Don't forget to put your name. I love to know who is commenting. Thank you.
