The Answer is ...........




A Sewing Case........

I,m not one who prepares every step,I just sort of make it up as I go along,I do know this is not the right way to go about things lol,It does not always work,I plod on till it does work !

This Sewing case is an example of trial and error,but hey ho i got there in the end,quite pleased with it,inside pages are the dye'd silk with squares of dye'd felt sewn in the middle for holding my needles and pins.The corner tag is fabric paper which i stamped the wording on with Stazon inkpad,The flowers are cut out of a scrap of lace and dye'd,I used a tiny blanket stitch I found on my machine and never used before,not easy going round the petals lol.

Now to clear up the mess !!!

This is gorgeous, Pattie. Love how the silk looked after painting.

After seeing all your work I thought it was time I made an attempt at making a couple of fabric squares and was quite pleased with how they turned out. Not in your league though. :o)
