Sew Fashionable




'Sew Fashionable', is the new theme over at Sugar Creek Hollow.  The card must depict sewing or fashion, in our usual shabby chic/vintage style. Please pop over for all the details as see what we have all been making. We are also welcoming  a guest designer for  this  challenge Zoe Sanderson



This card is layered up using Graphics 45 papers  and a  muslin layer. I am not handy with the sewing machine as I do need someone to thread the needle for me, when the hands won't do what they are told.
But this time I did stitch the layers together. The buttons were made with die cut shrink plastic shapes , coloured  and stamped, before heating.

Thank you for taking time to stop by, your comments are always appreciated.

  6. Love the sepia/red/black combination - so bold and stylish. And the layers are great, with the fabric and torn edges - very cute bobbins labels too. Great card!

  19. Love this beautiful piece Yvonne - stunning. Your stitching looks great. It's my eyes that let me down - sometimes takes me longer to thread the needle than it does to complete the work!
