Vintage Sewing Pattern Collage

Vintage Sewing Pattern Collage

Hello Everyone!

A vintage sewing pattern collage is a wonderful way to display an old sewing pattern. The patterns are fun to look at and alter for any of you crafts. 

I just love looking at old patterns. The pictures are great, with wonderful colors! Recently I found some terrific patterns at my local creative reuse center, Who Gives A Scrap, and I ended up getting about 10 or so, lol.

The pattern covers are perfect for a collage and the tissue paper on the inside work great for textures in mixed media. (I will show you how to do that later)

Materials:

  • Frame ( I found mine at the dollar store)
  • Sewing patterns, dictionary paper, stencils, paint, label maker
  • Mod podge, brushes

Instructions:

Bloom Where  You Are Planted:

This one was a lot of fun! I adhered 2 dictionary pages with Mod Podge to a piece of paper that fit the frame.

Then I stenciled the flowers (I stenciled in 1 color then I went back and added another color on top).

After stenciling add the cut out girl from the pattern.

For the edges I painted some darker colors and then lightened it up afterwards. I wanted it to look like a mat in the frame.

The frame was super easy. I painted the silver frame in a gold color, once that was dry I painted over it in a pearl white color.

When everything was dry I sanded it to create a shabby chic look. I think it turned out super cute.

Before I added everything in the frame I used a hand held label maker to print the quote.

Take These Broken Wings and Learn to Fly

This frame is essentially the same except I used a different stencil, but I still used 2 colors to give it dimension.

I didn’t add any colors to the edges, I thought with the wings I would look too busy.

I drew on the wings before attaching the girl.

This frame was easy as well. I just painted the silver frame gold to match a little better.

These are such easy collages to do, I think they would make a great gift!
