Well no posts all week and then you get three from me in one day. Reason its Handmade Monday so I just had to do a post for that. why not pop along and get your makes on there?
This week I have finished two Retro Divas, Twins I think, one with white detail and the other with black. The black lace is just to die for. Its a fragment of a Victorian veil from a hat. Very delicate and I had to stitch up a hole.
Looking a bit fed up of being poked and posed!!! Oh these two have lace, modern as the Victorian was just too fragile for this, or voile sleeves.
Crochet butterfly in her hair, 1/2 a lace collar as a shawl, with a vintage button broach.
A lovely tatted collar and huge vintage button broach.
We do rear views too.
Made four of these cushions, embroidery from one tablecloth. Surround by blue check another table cloth.
Backs of the cushions, random patch work of the blue check tablecloth and a 1/2 pair of Scandinavian pattern curtains. Lovely blue vintage buttons.
I have really been struggling with making a decent shaped heart. They are made of really small scraps, random patched together. Had a really bad tempered day getting these wrong! First I did not overlap patches enough. Then I did not sew right up to the edge of the patches so they split when I stuffed them. Then I could not sew around the top of the heart and get a neat round shape. I unpicked so many times. Then the hand sewn bit on the side was also a disaster. These look OK in the picture but not up to my standard for sale.
Just so you know I am not perfect and really bad blooper wrong items happen. This is the worst heart ever! Sewed too far down in the dip between the rounded tops. But I have an idea to use this as something else. So next week we will see if I have a new thingy to show you all.
