Welcome to another challenge set by the Happy Scrappy Friends! Today we would like to see some fabric in your project and for me – being a papercrafter – this task actually had its challenges!

You should have come from Dana, otherwise you can start here. Your next stop is with Dori. If you would like to take part and share your creation, please post a comment at Happy Scrappy Friends with a link to your project.

In my fabric stash I found some strips I had left over from a quilt I once started (not finished yet, I know!). I stitched it together diagonally, cut it apart and layered it together again so it appears as a wonky strip. I sewed it behind a piece of cardstock and then developed the rest of the layout around it. It wasn’t easy to start with, having all those different patterned fabrics on one side! Then I was looking into my scrap basket to find some papers with softer patterns so the busy fabric strip would still stand out on this layout.Layers of Light - dapfniedesign - Happy Scrappy Friends April 2016 - close up 3

Where fabric is, there should be buttons as well, right? So don’t forget these on your project!Layers of Light - dapfniedesign - Happy Scrappy Friends April 2016 - close up 1

I really like my star border as well – it brings some of the blues from the photo on the layout (together with another piece of fabric I used as a layer like I would normally use paper!).

  1. Total genial. und der blaue Sternenstreifen macht es perfekt.
    Die Stoffreste verheißen einen wundervollen Quilt. Wann nähst du den weiter oder gar nicht mehr?
