All Sewn Up at Take a Word

November 7th 2011


I'm a guest over at Take a Word this week and the theme is "Sewing" - one of my favourite things to do!!! So I've created this little needle case using a great images from CS Designs using my sewing machine.


I wanted a real sewn "look" so I've left bits of thread hanging and have left the raw edges to fray! I've sewn strips of muslin onto the Mummy image to look like she really is wrapped up LOL!! I printed the "all sewn up" wording and added a cute scissor charm.


Inside are 2 "pages" of felt for storing needles and fancy pins!


Hope you like my creations for Take a Word this week!!
