Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Making cards (or collages).

In between the patchwork I've been doing, and the sketching, I still find a bit of time to play with paper crafts. I borrowed some books on the subject from our library a few weeks ago, and yesterday I had an urge to try some of them.
The 'gingerbread' figures are cut from fabric and glued to the card, with sequins glued on for the buttons.

I had fun doing this! To make the stripes, you cut up strips of coloured paper and glue them all on to one plain sheet of paper. Then you lay the fruit templates over it, draw around the edge, cut them out and stick on to the background. Cute!
