Hi there! I've been away...still busy recovering from hols AND a week doing FUN things with my step-grand girl...so I've taken the 'cheats' option for this post & am doing the 'cut & paste' option......this is a FUN challenge....SEW easy to do - remember, all you need to do is include at least ONE recycled item...& anything to do with sewing...any sort of project! Hope to see you join us at LESSology:)
Hey there! Sooooo...it's all about sewing stuff.....I have a love-hate relationship with my sewing machine. But I got it out for my card! Sewed around the edges. I even tucked the threads in!!!
Can you see the ticket tucked in there? That was the card that the buttons came on - from my DT mate, Mitra, actually! Recycled...tick! Mind you, the buttons are all 'vintage' as well *winks*
Then I got out a needle & thread & actually sewed a couple of buttons on my card.
There's also some ribbon & some recycled lace doily in there, too. The background has fibre paste over a square stencil, then white paint over a plastic doily that I use as a mask. The 'hello' sentiment was cut on my Silly machine ~ I've added a little embossing powder to give it some punch.
In the centre of the flower I've added another button - removing the shank first, then encircling it with some diamente trim. I reckon that about fills the criteria for this month.
How are YOU going to use the 'sewing' challenge? Can't WAIT to see what you come up with:)
Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
PS: That yummy big flower? From The Trinket Track:)
