I love sewing on my scrapbooks, but I also adore sewing clothes, bags and quilts too!
This project is a gift for my mother ( I hope she won't be spying here before christmas...), so the embroidery hoop is a reminder of her crattiness, her creativity, and the fabric is for her love to quilting and sewing. (can you guess who I got that from? :) )
The main fabric is a white cotton scrap piece.
I transfered a quote: "If you love someone, put their name in a circle; because hearts can be broken, but circles never end" this way: 1. print it backwards on a transparency 2. apply medium gel on the fabric and on the text 3. Put the text on the fabric and press with your fingers, as you do it for a rub-on 4. remove the transparency and the text should be on your fabric 5. let it dry.
I used some light glimmery pink paint spray to color the white fabric, which brought a distressed look to the text part too.
Than I sewed the other fabric pieces over with my sewing machine. I mostly chose pink Cord :: Patchwork: The George
The flowers were machine stitched too, and I added the buttons afterwards.
To finish, I embossed the alphabet chipboards in white and sticked them on the fabric with glue.
Chipboard :: Shelby Alphabet
Happy sewing to you all :)
