Stitching at Crafty Ann's


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

This is lovely Irene. There's so much going on with all the embellishments it reminds me of my mum's sewing room when I was a kid. We would have loved to received a card like this.
