A BIT OF SEWING

Me again,

I have been sorting through my stash and trying to use up some NBUS. I think I have enough stuff to open a small shop. I must admit to being a wee bit of a hoarder of my 'precious' things, so I figured it was about time I started to actually use it hahaha :-)

Here is a little card that I made with the latest Freebie from A DAY FOR DAISIES. It's called " All Tucked In " - such a sweet design.

I paper pieced the blanket and pillow and then I coloured the rest with Copics.




After I cut it out I did a simple blanket stitch around the outside. I used some pretty thread I got from a local Greek shop and you wouldn't believe how insanely difficult this stuff was to thread the needle and actually sew with !!!! I can't imagine what it could possibly be used for but I fell in love with it on sight :-)

I mounted it on some pink corrugated card and then used a teddy bear backing paper from my NBUS Joanna Sheen 'Baby' pad of papers that I have had forever !!  :-D 

Thanks for dropping in.
