Altered Bag # 10

The theme for this bag is ‘travel.’ Mary included photos¬† and tickets printed on fabric of trips she has taken since childhood. I picked the photo of the cruise ship and had fun layering it with¬† fabrics and ribbon. I used fusible web and did some free motion stitching to hold the piece together. I outlined the ship with a Pigma pen and also did some stitching in a dark grey thread to add detail. This is what the piece looks like before adding it to the canvas bag. I have a tag that says ‘enjoy the journey’ that I hope to fit into the piece. It might have to be sewn on to another place on the bag as it is getting crowded!
