Andy Warhol once said, "Art is whatever you can get away with". This is my version of abstract fabric art. Use your imagination and see what you come up with. Just remember that the smaller the pieces are, the longer it will take to sew around each one. Get creative! 

Step 1: supplies needed

For this project you will need a sewing machine, thread, scissors, wonder-under fusible webbing (purchased by the yard) cotton fabric scraps or old shirts. pins and an old painting on a canvas. I confess, this was my attempt at painting a colorful picture. It just didn't turn out like I wanted. Wood framed canvas is not cheap, I could either paint over it or throw it away. I chose to cover it with fabric. 
<p>Looks great, I'd love to have that on my wall. Soft art!</p>
This is so neato!
Oooh, that looks really fun! Great idea :)
