This project, which is called ‘Pixel’ was completed in the summer of 2015. I’d had the idea for a while, after thinking that the Kleenex box would translate nicely into a fabric wall hanging. The squares were cut at 4 1/2″, allowing for 1/4″ seam allowance, and the finished hanging is approximately 36″ x 41″. I sewed the horizontal rows first and then joined them from top to bottom.
I had originally thought about adding a version of the Kleenex logo and polled my friends for their thoughts. The nays won, hands down, so I kept the black bar plain. There is a hanging sleeve on the back and the metal rod runs through it, keeping it nice and straight.
Had I not seen the Kleenex box, I would never have considered throwing all those colours together, even though I like them all individually. This was an eye opener for me and I now usually have my camera or iPhone with me to snap other ideas. Here are a few shots that might inspire a project one day. If you hover over the bottom of each picture you’ll bring up a description.
