I was inspired by Care over at Obsessively Stitching for this design. She did an I-Spy Fabric Swap which I participated in and she sent me one of her I-Spy cards with my fabric squares. So as I was doing some rearranging of my office again I found two frames that needed a purpose. So I decided to use her I-Spy idea to whip up a couple of fabric collages to go inside the frames. I used fabrics that I’ve used for projects for my two kiddos in the past and then some new ones that I plan to use in the quilts I’m going to make them for Christmas.
Start off by drawing a square the size of the inside of the frame. Then cut about an inch from that line. You will use the line as a guide to where the fabric needs to cover.
Then just cut out random pieces of scrap fabric and arrange them so they fill the entire square area.
Pin the pieces down and then sew away. I first sewed along the border and then just did random squiggles and loops all over.

Now cut out a piece of cardboard so it will fit in the back of your frame. I then just used a little tap at each corner to attach the back of the collage to the cardboard. You could also use a glue and permanently attach it.
I then trimmed the excess off.
Pop it into the frame and hang it on the wall. Tada!!!! It took me maybe 2 hours to do 2.
