This months challenge at Lets get Shabby is to use a beautiful quilt for inspiration for your colour scheme.......you also have to include some MATERIAL/FABRIC in your project.
I used the last of my Mothers little hessian bags from the Trade Aid shop in New Zealand and some Making Memories foam stamps.
I bought the material samples from a craft show at Harrogate 3-4 years ago and used a new method for making them that I saw on a blog recently. I would love to give you credit but I can't remember whose it was, sorry......... anyway I wired them!!
Please remember that only projects made exclusively for Lets get Shabby will be acceptetd as we are not a multi challenge site.
Foam stamps with Gesso my token touch of yellow
It's times like this when I remember why I hoarded all of those buttons!! I soooooo enjoyed playing with my first love again...it reminded me of those days when I used to buy Laura Ashley style crafting material by the metre and make skirts from it. It was cheaper than normal fabric so my sister and I had a sprig splurge during the 80's. The only downside was we dicovered that it wasn't very colour fast!! Things have changes since then and fat quarters are really stunning now.
This is the beautiful quilt that inspired our Design Team, so whether it's Autumn or Spring where ever you live there have to be some gorgeouscolours in here to get your mojo going.Love and textiles
