Hi Bloggers, how are you all today?
A week or so ago I went to a sewing class where we were making postcards and bookmarks. I'm not an expert sewer but I can get by and I enjoy doing 'small projects' which don't take too long to finish.
The class was all about having fun and using up scraps. I got my postcard finished on the day - it turned out to be a bit of a surreal landscape - think I had my 'arty farty' hat on!
We used a firm interfacing for the base, which was sprayed with inks. Then scraps of fabric, bits of foil and some stitching.
I only half made the bookmark on the day but I finished it yesterday.
The central panel is made of batik scraps, ribbon and some gold lame, with again some gold stitching on top. The dangly bit is made from a necklace.
I'd like to enter these into the following challenges ...

Okay, that's it for today, I'm off to the supermarket, wonder if they sell sunshine - isn't this weather miserable!
