Our Dad passed away in January 2017. My sister and I decided to each make a fabric portrait of Dad, made entirely from Dad's clothing. I used a recent photo to create my portrait of "Older Jack". I included some of his personal affirmations and a poem he adapted about "jack-stars".
Techniques: Fused fabric collage, made from Dad's shirts, ties, and a favorite, oft-mended sweater vest. Hand-embroidered "jack-stars". Cards and poem printed on shirt fabric, and fused and quilted to the background.
