Hello my name is Paula Gsell, I'm a Chef, with a culinary design and marketing education. I use to think that cooking was my passion until I found fabric appliqué designs, now I have two passions to explore and create! Most of my life I have had a passion for designing. I have worked with food design, interior design and the creating of decoupage design murals and back splashes for builders. In the last four years I have founded "Paula's Gifts of Love" custom fabric appliqué designs. I have explored the idea of using the decoupage process, but taking it one step further using fabric cuts.

These fabric appliqué designs are made from individual cuts of fabric that have a fusion backing heated onto a block of fabric. Once the fusion backing is in place the the process of cutting pieces of fabric begins. These fabric cuts are placed onto a ground fabric, such as a tote bag or blouse. The backing paper is then removed from each fabric cut and the cuts are placed onto whatever project I'm working on, arranging the fabric cuts into my desired patterns. Next the pieces are fused together with a hot iron holding for 10-20 seconds in each area. Once the fusion is made and cooled we begin the process of outlining and detailing all design edges to seal and embellish . I use a very fine metal tip to outline with fabric paint.

All fabric appliqué designs have a textured dimensional look and feel. These designs are created with a sincere passion for the process of fusing fabrics together to create a colorful magical look. I love what it is I do, and I hope you will see these designs as gifts of love, made from the sheer joy of creativity.

There is a lot of time that goes into the creating of these fabric appliqué art pieces. Each and every design is totally unique. I enjoy creating custom designs on anything from clothing to pillows, so if there is something you would like that you do not see here, please contact me and we can discuss custom creations made specifically to suit your personal desires and taste.
Thank you,
Paula Gsell
