Hi there everyone! I'm so excited to share a few projects with you today.
First I want to show you the tattered layered scarf I made...
I used antique lace, pieces of an old doily, gauze fabric, handmade rosettes, and that super loose weave fabric that you see was from a package of "creepy cloth" sold at walmart during halloween last year. (I had never seen it in tan before so I bought a bunch of packages for use in collage, love the texture)
I love how it turned out. Can't wait to wear it out!
My Gypsy Carpet Bag is something that was inspired by Magnolia Pearl bags like the one below.
This is my own design (below), I made the pattern for it, and couldn't be happier with the way it turned out.
I used several different kinds of upholstery fabric remnants, all with blue and brown. I lucked into some really great trim remnants that were just right. I'm still deciding what to put in the center of the vintage doily though, thinking about maybe a layered handmade flower pin or something similar.
I made it extra roomy because it will be my craft fair bag. I put snaps on the sides so it can go bigger and so it doesn't have to be huge at all times only when I need it to be, LOL.
I hope you are having a great week!
