Sew and Sew


I am sharing another of my plaques with you today. The sewing themes ones are always popular and a friend of mine bought this one for her sewing room. The plaque has been painted a lovely soft blue, Laura Ashley paint I think. I cut the Little Claire paper with a stitched MFT die. The ribbons and lace are all from Crafty Ribbons. I stamped a pattern onto the wooden sewing maching using a freebie stamp from a magazine and wound baker's twine around the cotton reel. The tiny buttons are Gorjuss.

Challenges
Bizzy Becs anything goes 
Stamping Sensations Sew special (stamping on the sewing machine, hope that counts)
Allsorts Numbers (on the tape measure)
