Quite recently I was gifted this beautiful image
in an exchange with Lilla (Just Lilla blog)
and decided to create something quite dramatic in shades
of black with highlights of grey, rust and brown.
So a bag it would be with a flap displaying
"Odette" - isn't she beautiful looking out over the water?
and using one of my own designs in a crazy patchwork fashion
I couldn't resist
I couldn't resist
using some beautiful vintage laces and doilies
as well as some gorgeous fabrics like black velvet,
black organza and black laces with some from
recycled and upholstery fabrics.
and here she sits on my table in my studio next to my button box
for the time being!
The little crocheted medallion under the black button
was created and gifted from Julia
(Vintage with Laces)
and the rosette is from Carole
(Flights of Fancy Boutique)
Carole has the most amazing collection of all kinds of embellishments you can imagine for your
creations. So go and pay her a visit!
Linking this post to Paula at Ivy and Elephants for
"What's it Wednesday".
I do have such a large collection of beautiful fabrics -
new, vintage, exotic, rare, silks, linens, satins, cottons and
thought to myself that
it might be time to start packaging some of them up
for sale in my Etsy shop.
They would be perfect in small crazy quilting projects,
journals, collages, etc. etc.
I have been collecting (hoarding) much fabric
now for many years and I think it's
time to let some go!!!
Sometimes we only need such a small piece
but that's is never what we buy - we tend to go for
lots more just in case!!!! Isn't that right???
Are any of you interested in my idea
Hope to get some feedback soon.
Thank you dear friends for always visiting and leaving such
appreciative thoughts and comments.
