Another week flown by and time to tell you about our new Challenge for this week at Sugar Creek Hollow.
The theme is 'Fabric', you can use any fabric, but, no ribbon or lace.
Please pop over for all the details and see the fabulous examples my team mates have been making.
Remember our style is vintage/shabby chic.
I have used a patterned cotton for one of my layers with a piece of muslin behind the picture of the girl.
These are frayed at the edges as I am not that handy with the sewing machine. It is sitting on a shelf and one day I might surprise myself and give it an airing.
For the flowers I ironed the fabric scraps onto a no-sew material, this helped to stop fraying when I put them through the die cutting machine. I used the Tattered floral Tim Holtz Alterations die.
The swirls were cut out of grey card, it proved impossible to get material ones cut that kept any sort of shape. Trimmings are a materials from my scraps and bits box.
I am also entering the challenges over at
Fussy and Fancy- Challenge 71 'Fabric of our Lives.
Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge Recipe 88 is Vintage toy colour. I hope the reds and maybe the greys I used match colours from the chart
Thank you for stopping by, all your comments are appreciated.
