After I did these greeting cards out of fabric, I got a bit obsessed over doing more fabric collages. Here's a little bit more experimentation. This little tea guy is about 4 x 4 inches. (nothing too big so I don't feel like I am wasting fabric.)

Here is the sketch I did, its cool to see how it got translated.
And its so easy in Illustrator to break up the shapes, print it out and voila- you have a pattern!
