Happy Saturday, I am so glad you stopped by to check out my card for this week's challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow where we are pleased to be sponsored by Live and Love Crafts ; your haven for vintage and shabby chic crafts. We were each supplied with some of their fabulous hand dyed crinkle seam binding....it is so pretty in person and I also used the packaging it came in to decorate the top of my dress form.
We ask you to create a project this week with stitching on it and using something fashionable....dress, hat, shoes, etc.!
Since I am not a seamstress and the small sewing machine that I do have would not cooperate with me, I hand sewed the paper layer with a back stitch and used a running stitch to attach my fabric heart to my lace doily.
After using my texture pads on the background layer, I attached the paper wrap around my dress form with seam binding to the skirt bottom adding a seam binding belt. I love the paper they wrap the binding in, I feel like the child that gets a fabulous gift and love the box just as much as the item, lol!
I added distress inks to the chipboard hearts along with a herringbone brad, a scissor charm and a floss bobbin which I wrapped more of the seam binding around. I added a handmade tag with linen thread.
Please visit our great sponsor and check out her great store, I am sure you will finds lots of things that you will love, I certainly did.
I hope you will get out your sewing machine or if you are like me, your needle and thread
and play along with us this week.
