Art from Vintage Patterns

Recently
my oldest daughter and I did an art project for her room.
She wanted something different and it needed to have a vintage feel.
So, we dug out some patterns and went to work.


I made copies of the patterns


And we cut them out and glued them on scrapbook paper


This poor girl was to tall and her legs hung out the other side of the frame


This made me laugh so we left it that way


Now,
She has new vintage art for her room at the cost a few sheets of paper.






Have you made art out of something unexpected lately?

You are so clever! Love this idea! Am often drawn to these vintage patterns at estate sales, yard sales etc., but didn't know how I'd use them. Thanks for the inspiration!

Cute, fun, vintage vibe! I think it's so funny that you left the legless one. It will be a fun thing that will make you both smile when you look at it, and bring back memories of when you made it.
