Fabric Collage: Our Brothers and Sisters

Hello there! I recently purchased this beautiful old photo of a sister and her two brothers in their adorable sailor suits, so of course I couldn't wait to create something with it. 

"Our Brothers and Sisters are There with Us"

For this one I used satins and velvet
in beautiful shades of aqua...

...along with vintage laces
and old buttons...

...and a wonderful quote
accented by beautiful old vintage velvet ribbon
and a worn mother of pearl belt buckle...

The collage is completely hand stitched,
and sewn to linen burlap.
This piece is now listed in my Etsy shop.

Many thanks for coming by!
