Cross-stitching, embroidering, quilting – all great, wonderful craft options. They are very time consuming, however, and I always have a dozen or so cross-stitch patterns in my hopper. Sometimes, I want to make a quick little something, either for my wall or to make as a gift. Enter, the fabric block.
If you haven’t worked with fabric blocks before, you are in for a treat! They are SO versatile and easy to work with. I make my own here at Bella Stitchery, and have several here in my Etsy shop under the “Fabric Block” category. I can also custom print designs or images for you as well. Fabric blocks are great to frame and hang as-is, or you can personalize them with your own special embroidery and embellishment. The sky is the limit!
They are fabulous to use on so many projects, too:
My fabric is all handmade, so they are dry-clean only. Feel free to contact me regarding custom orders and special prices for larger quantities.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy crafting!
What takes 8 months to complete and a lifetime to enjoy? This handmade finished cross-stitch! I finished this pin-up with plane fiber art in 2013 and she’s looking for a good home.
You can check out the listing here on eBay and she is packed and ready to ship to the highest bidder – just in time for Christmas (it’s the perfect gift idea!)
Happy bidding, and thanks so much for supporting handmade!
P.S. Love this pin-up, but want to make something of your own? I also have this fabulous retro illustration available as a fabric block! Perfect for embroidery hoops, altered art embroidery, pillows and more!
I love the kitsch of 1950’s retro. Just absolutely love it. Paper crafting is a way for me to enjoy ephemera in a whole new way – by taking the illustrations I love and making one-of-a-kind collage art from them.
Below are some of my recent creations. I have also included a free “Pressed for Time” pin-up image, which is a one-of-a-kind collage I made myself. Enjoy!
