Fabric squares

It's been a while since I posted but as we all know Life gets in the way at times, peace has come back to my home again so I have some time for posting, below are some 4" fabric sqaures that I have made for a swap, we had to make 9 of these with the theme of winged ladies, Ali, the hostess will swap them with squares from other players then sew them together to make decorative cushion covers for us, Many thanks Ali.

The background fabrics are all 100% cotton, one of the ladies is stamped, the others are from my collage sheets, only the image with the two ladies had wings, the other wings are cut out from some butterfly images, I cut a small slit on the ladies back and pushed the wing through this, the images were then copied onto white cotton fabric that I had ironed onto freezer paper so that I could put it through the printer, these were cut out and machined into place then added lace, braids, beads, netting, organza, fabric flowers etc to finish.
