Vintage - Ribbons, Lace and Buttons

This month the challenge at Cards Galore is Vintage Lace and Buttons and as a member of the design team I was lucky to be given a special digi image designed especially for the challenge , by the challenge sponsor, Scrappers Delight!

To enter just pop along to Cards Galore with any crafty work that follows the theme. The winner gets $5 to spend in the Scrappers Delight Download Shop which means you could buy all four Holly Hobbie Images and have enough money left over to treat yourself to another one too!

For my image I decided to try something different. My daughter, Bethany keeps a diary and I thought it would be a fun idea to make her an old fashioned Muslin bag for it. I made the bag using my sewing machine (and most of my patience) and I transferred the printed, digital Holly Hobbie image on to another piece of white muslin, which I sewed on. I added ribbons, buttons on the drawstring, and dried rosebuds (which smell gorgeous!) to each corner.

I have made a tutorial for image transferring which will be available soon on the Cards Galore site (and I will post it on here on Monday!)

Sorry the photos aren't too good, I will retake them but at the moment we are still clearing up after OBR! (Operation Bethany's Room) more aout that at the weekend!
