Vintage and Shabby Chic

My work is usually quite bright and bold in colour but just lately I have been getting into pinks and creams and lace.

I went to Stockport Emporium and picked up a few pieces of lace and now need to visit more vintage markets to find more.

I made a 6 inch box using my usual method of making fabric using layers of organza on curtain lining and pelmet vilene and decorated it with lace and roses made from chiffon and silk organza. I've already had an order for 3 so am working through those. I made some hearts and sold 8 to my friends at the hospice and have orders for 4 more so it looks like I'm onto a winner. One of the small bags sold too.

Next a mobile phone case and a couple of brooches which I'll probably follow by a book cover and then need to put my thinking cap on.

  1. Wow, these are so soft and lovely! I am a "brights" person too, but I do love a change with laces and muted colours- all part of the balance of things I guess.
