Working from Photos

My process for creating a fabric collage from a favorite photo.

Working on subjects from the heart is joyful. Family photos are a great jumping off place. In this original photo the feet were cropped off and that wasn't the look I wanted for the final composition. I found a second photo showing feet, combined the two and then eliminated the messy background. Voila, a finished pattern for my fabric collage, "Tiny Nonbinary Rocks Their World". Commercial fabric and hand dyed fabric, raw edge applique and free motion stitching help me tell the story.
