I decided to have a go at making some fabric charms after seeing lots of other people's examples on their blogs. However, they all seemed to be one inch square and I didn't feel ready to go quite that small so these are 2" square. They are done on painted vilene to which I've added bondaweb and scraps of fabric and threads. The turquoise one has little bits of lime and blue plastic bags ironed on and is covered by some blue chiffon. The orange one includes some gold sequin waste and is covered with orange net. The image of the lady is stamped on to gold foil (Magnum ice cream wrapper again) with a Stazon ink pad. Both are backed onto felt. Because of the small scale a small piece of fabric makes quite a lot of charms so I gave quite a few of the turquoise ones away at work and still have a basketful left!
