Hello wednesday - all about sewing

Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday  "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!

A few weeks back I was asked by the wonderful Debbie from the Crafty Pad if I could use some of her sewing images with our ribbons and buttons.  Ooooh that sounds fun, but I can not make cards so how about a little wallhanging?

I got to use my mod podge!!!

I cut strips from an old sewing pattern and covered my board with mod podge (oh it was like being a child again). I then layered the sewing pattern onto the board, overlapping and adding more mod podge where needed.  Once it was covered I just flipped all the ends of the sewing pattern over to the back of the board and left it overnight to dry.

Next day the fun really started, play time.  The theme for the challenge was "sewing", the images Debbie had sent me were all sewing related, so I printed a few out and layered them onto the board.  I got a feel of what I wanted to do, I kept it all simple with a "pink" theme and went for it!!

The tape measure ribbon was a must, and a few buttons of course.  I wanted to use Debbies Stitch Happy badge as the focal point of the wall hanging, so quickly turned it into a rosette style badge using 25mm pink gingham.

I cut a selection of ribbons into little squares with pinking shears to look like fabric.

I have never been asked to make something for another blog before, so I took this as a real honour. Thank you Debbie and all at The Crafty Pad for asking me.  

The Crafty Pad are running a two week competition, so why not join in with the fun, you can read all about it here.  Nearly forgot there are prizes.......
