Today I am working on an altered art wall hanging. I have wanted to create one of these altered art photo's for such a long time, I have seen them on pinterest. 

I have some really old beautiful photo's of children. I thought i would create something beautiful to hang in the studio.

Pin Cushions

I found a couple of Kits left from the show last year. I will be adding a couple to my etsy store this week. The above photo, is my pin cushion I have sitting on my desk and use it everyday. They look lovely sitting in a vintage cup.

I will have kits and e-patterns for sale in my etsy store this week.

I covered a small round box in some paris map print and added the blue pin cushion.

I have left the raw edges as it looks vintage.

A Creative day in the Studio

Here in Queensland Australia we had a public Holiday, so i thought i would spend the day creating some more pin keeps from my fabric tags. They are fantastic to use when you are on the go and need pins with you.

I have listed a couple in my etsy store and the rest sold last night on my facebook page.
So today i am making some more for my etsy store.

A new project in the studio today

I started a new project this morning. I have wanted to cover the beautiful chest of drawers for a long while now. So today is the day. I had a beautiful old book that was falling apart. It had the most beautiful aging around the edges.

I have covered everything I am just waiting on the bottom drawer to dry it seems to have a lot of bubbles.

all finished and dry, most of the bubbles went when it dried. I have used 3 different lots of handles and i love the way it has turned out.

here is a close up of the handles.

Playing around with some vintage lace

Saturday I started on a new project not knowing what to create but knowing i wanted to use some vintage lace and buttons.

I had no intentions of making a bear or elephant of any kind. she just happened and she is the smallest one to date that I have made she sits at 10 cm 4".

I really love the vintage lace sewn to her body and the buttons and a little cream bow.

So on Sunday i started the day again wanting to create something other than a "bear".

I ended up making a needle book. I have made them before but not since the craft and quilting fair last year.

It started like this.

Front Cover.
I still have a little more work to finish it off.
The fabric i have used on the front is the map of Paris. I really love using this fabric.
It is a gorgeous vintage looking pink colour

There is lots of room to store your vintage lace ribbon buttons pins and needles.
it has 3 pockets.

you can remove the fabric tag needle holder.

This is what it looks like under the fabric tag on the needle book.

I have added lots of mother of pearl button some vintage and a couple new.

I think i will be making some more of these this week to add to my etsy store.

Hope you all have a productive weekend.
