Here is another piece of fabric art I made, but this one I did for sale. I needed to earn a little bread for Christmas and since my bags don't seem to generate any income, I thought I'd list this bad boy and see if it sold and it did!
This is a little piece I call Starlight Affair.
Just a couple dolphins in love, meeting under the moonlight.
I used fabric I already had. The ocean was made with old jeans.
I really have fun creating these pieces.
In fact, I've decided that I am going to switch gears and try to start selling my fabric art, rather than apparel or accessories.
It's hard to sell a bag. You can go to any Walmart or Target and get one cheap. People don't seem to appreciate the uniqueness and quality that goes into handmade apparel/accessories. It takes a tremendous amount of time and materials and I never really "profit".
I think these pieces are more unique and can last a life time if cared for properly. I think they are a little different from what anyone else is doing. I love that I can reduce, reuse, and recycle all of the little fabric scraps that I save from other products. Rather than contributing to the landfill, I can use them to create art. I'm hoping this avenue will lead to more success.
I love sewing and creating. You just can't stop me! Eventually I will find my niche. I'm hoping fabric art may be it!
Pretty soon I will have more pieces for sale to share with you.
I hope you like my piece!
