Inchies

Cute inchies, alway newly arranged
Author: Gerti Nadler, Neunkirchen, Austria
"Inchies" are very trendy at the moment. These small collectors items are traded, collected, hoarded and given as gifts worldwide.
"Inchies" are small fabric creations with the dimensions 1 x 1 inch (hence the name).
(1 inch = 25,4 mm).
They are sewn, embroidered, glued, etc. and then presented singly or in block form as a picture.
I like to use finished canvas frames, which are available in a variety of sizes.
Any means of fastening the inchies is allowed. My first pictures were glued together, until I realised the potential of the small super magnets!
I had recently purchased some magnets and wanted to try them out, so I sewed small magnets in the inchies and fastened a counterpart on the backside of the canvas frame.
In this way I can change my picture easily any time without nasty glue residue.
My imagination will certainly provide me with additional possibilities for using these small magnets. I've only just begun!
This small project is made of old computer parts with a large magnet on the backside. It belongs to my grandson, who very much likes my work with fabric and brings me various computer parts.
The parts can be put to use wonderfully in my work.
