I Glue Fabric to Cards

My super crafty grandma passed away a little over a year ago. I still miss her everyday. Grandma could just about do anything, sewing, doll making, knitting, crochet, quilting, needle work...etc etc etc. Grandma also had a little bit of an online shopping habit and soon had a craft room full of patterns, fabric, and just stuff. My mother and Aunts went through and choose some special things they wanted or would use. After that my grandpa started sending home bags of fabric and odds and ends with me every time I come over. Now have a closet full of fabric. The problem is I DON'T SEW. (get it) My lovely cohorts Minnie and The Queen of the Universe will occasionally come by and snag a few yards here and there and ask me four or five times 'are you sure it is OK?' I am sure ladies there is a whole lot more waiting for me at Grandpa's house. I love seeing being used too. Every once in awhile I will open that closet and the smell of it will put me into tears. It isn't a particularly good smell. Grandma lived in the country (well country for California) and the house always had a musty, earthy, cat, dog, old people kind of smell (sorry Grandpa). I wanted to find a way to use some of this fabric myself. I like little projects I can start and finish in a day. Sadly I do not have a craft room and everything I am working on needs to be put away in the little closet every night. So the requirements were: little project, use fabric, no using the sewing machine. This is what resulted.




Ever since I added Picasa Photo Viewer I can't rotate my pictures! Does anyone know how to fix this?

What a great idea. Awesome way to use the fabric and be reminded of your grandmother at the same time. Saw that you joined our group on Etsy and wanted to check out your blog. Good job!
