A fun addition to any room... you only need some pictures and a sewing machine!
This is a project from Mark Montano's "Big Ass Book of Crafts". It's pretty easy to do, and it looks great when you're done! The book says to use postcards but you could also use magazine clippings, photographs, decorative paper, ect. In my case I ended up going through art school catalogs and picking out my favorite pictures.
If you do plan on doing this project, I would recommend glueing cardstock to the back of thin pictures. It helps to keep the paper nice and flat when you are sewing pieces together.

I'll try and get a better picture when the lighting is less weird. :]

love this , really awesome, i think if you make your own tute and show from whom it is i think you can share a how to, but you don't are alowed to use their pictures and their text.
i think when people have fuseble webbing you can iron the paper on it and then zig zag it. but you can use very thin paper as well, smarter.LOL
but don't use then too heavy glue, a thin layer of white glue or mode podge is working great.
or just PVA glue much cheaper.LOL
i have worked a lot on paper and with the sewing machine so i have tried it allready out.;-D
maybe this is helpfull.
love your work!!!! well done, very beautiful!!!;-D

I thought making a little diagram would be easier than trying to explain it... hahaha...

I would do a how to, but it is based off a project from a book, so I'm not sure if that's allowed... :-\
