Starlight Affair

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!

  1. Hi!
    Lovely fabric art!
    My daughther loves dolphins, if she would see this... :D
    I agree, you should make and sell fabric art!!! There is too many people making purses and accessories, so you have to be creative and make something different!!!
    Good luck!!!
