Stitching - real or faux
is your challenge this fortnight
My main BP and the turquoise strip are from one of my favourites the Funky collection.
I have stitched around the main BP and punched a fancy Fiskars edge on the turquoise - tis a shame, but I've always had trouble with this border punch and now it is broken...and I thought it would last me forever :(
I found the perfect page on stitching for this challenge in an old book and the dress form is a freebie from a vintage image site.
The scissors, cotton reel and thimble are from Crafty Ann's sewing sheet . I positioned these on a piece of frayed muslin and added three tiny buttons
I wrapped some thread around the cotton reel and left a length trailing ready to be cut with the scissors.
Additional embellishments -
Tape bought at a craft fair last year
Small safety pin
Seam binding bow with button
Crinoline flower tinted with spun sugar DI
