30 inches of happiness

Did you see these Snippet Rolls? What a wonderful find I made: Here and here Of course mine is a bit different, it is bigger and I also made a spool box. I printed my photos on white fabric. Lately I was a participant of a fabric collage swap and for the first time I printed an image on fabric. Oh my, a real passion came alive with this technique. I love the way black and white photos look on fabric. It is not easy to make a good photo out of the snippet roll, it is long (it measures 30 inches), but I think you can see the general idea of it.

I embellished mine with buttons, fiber, flowers, some handstamped images and lace. Everything is sewn on.

Will you make a snippet roll?
Have a creative Sunday!

  1. WOW Michelle, This is Fabulous!!! I have been thinking of purchasing some fabric to print on can you recommend a good one? I just love your project!!!!
    hugs Lynn

  2. What a good idea for a small project. I love your spool box. You are a very clever artist my friend! I also liked working with fabric on our collage project..so easy to run it through the printer. I may try another one of those some time.
    Your new things in your shop are great!!
    Hugs to you!!

  3. Your snippet roll is gorgeous and I love the spool box to keep it in. I tried doing the photos on transfer paper and then ironing it onto the fabric.... it was not a success so any clue on how you print direct to fabric and what sort of fabric would be a huge help!!

  4. This is so Gorgeous and so creative!! I love little treasures like this ~ so full of surprises!! Beautiful Work!
    Nancy :D

  5. I have seen these appearing here and there in blogland and find them very charming. You really took a different spin on yours. I love the size and it is so precious because of the pictures and the unique way of presenting them

    Enjoying your blog. I have it on my Google Reader!


  6. Thanks Michelle, both for the tips on printing and for the inspiration of your lovely spool box!! I have added a link to give you credit for the original design... and of course you can add the tiny spools, they are cute, aren't they? I got them in Michaels. hugs Annette

  7. Hopped over from voodoo vixen's blog, this is absolutely stunning, i love both the spool and the snippet roll, i wanna try both for sure :D
