This is the first in a series of Women in Fabric Art Wall Hangings.  I used scraps of fabrics I had on hand.  Inspired by the artist Botero and a children's book, I wanted to exaggerate the features, and use ambiguous skin tones.  This one first place at the L.A. County Fair!

This fabric wallhanging is made using 100% cotton fabric, fusible bond, beads, metallic thread and a variety of misc scraps of fabric.   It's about 22"X30" and is machine quilted.  After it is quilted, embroidered and beaded the back of the piece is wrapped in a beautiful contrasting fabric, bringing the edges to the front to make a neat border and finish off the piece so all the loose threads are hidden.  As with all of my wall art, I have patterns available, either free or low price, you can email me for the pdf. ~Tovadiandean.com
