A busy week of planing and executing

Okay this week I spent a lot more time making products and some OOAK (one of a kind). I love to make OOAK mainly because I get bored with production line making and as I often use vintage embellishments which can never be bought again, do not have to worry about getting each piece the same.

Vintage Lady Silk Bag

I love crazy patchwork and whilst have done on the normal machine now have the embroidery machine which can do it all for me. This is an 8" X 8" square design, have added a vintage lady in photostitch embroidery to the front. One of the bag frames and handles from The Netherlands. These are glued as well as stitched in, as placed an order for some DMC Perle No. 8 thought this would look good as the stitching, which is more decorative.

 Victorian Reticule

Made in white cotton with a hint of silver glitter, with a machine embroidered photo
stitch vintage lady reading a letter, decorative scrolls on the top border. Loved making this again took ages but think worth it in the end.

Rose metal hearts

Picked these metal hearts up from Hobbycraft and being at a lose end turned into shabby chic beauties.

Next Project

Next project: Now this is a bit of a tease, 100% wool felt, threads and a bag frame, now what can I be making with these goodies. Not sure how long this will take as a lot of hand sewing, may be a few weeks before seen.

Silver Pendant Frames

Some pretty pendant frames again a hand stitched project in the wings.
