A new project, Family tree



Having wanted to make a family tree with fabric I have at last started it!

The print out of my ancestors and desendants has been copied onto fabric. Also I have managed to find photos of my parents, grandparents and even Great Grandparents to add along with snippets of other information, like newspaper cuttings and a birth register document.

I intend using a jelly roll to join the fabric pictures together, and will start by adding a 1 inch border to each photo, then attemp to join them altogether into a wall hanging.

You are so lucky to have photos of your ancestors/relatives. I can only go back to 2 of my grandparents!
