Christmas Giveaway and Sewing Kit project !

Christmas Giveaway and Sewing Kit project !
The sewing kit is not the giveaway though,I need more practice.........

I was very inspired by the sewing project in the Dec issue of Craft Stamper,so ordered Tim Holtz Alterations Movers and Shapers(Label) which i can use in my Cuttlebug Machine.........it came today so i couldnt wait to start on my version of the sewing kit.I,m sort of happy with the finished piece,i,m calling it my practice piece lol,a lot of work involved !

I cutout all the pieces and dye;d my fabric's .
I used
Felt for padding
The above Tim Holtz diecut
My Crop O Dile and gromets.
A Transfered image
and a little cheap sewing kit out of Hobby Craft.
Lace (Antique)
Foam Flowers painted.
and stamped some scrolls on the backgrounds with Tim Holtz distress ink pads onto my fabric.
Also a keyring for holding pages

This new diecut has really inspired me it measures roughley 3.1/2 x6" and such a lovely shape.

To thank everyone for supporting me and the lovely comments throughout the year,I,m giving away a Fabric purse below,totally made from scratch..........a sample of my fabric work this year.

Everyone who leaves a comment by the 17th of this month,one name will be drawn out of the hat by my friend,please leave me your email address's so i can contact you :) or email me privately.

Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and a Wonderful New Year x

OMG Pattie, this little kit is absolutely beautiful. (Whatever Maureen tells you I really AM rubbish at sewing! LOL) An awful lot of work maybe, but worth it in the end. Glad you're back crafting again. x
Oh and PS - the fabric purse is stunning!! x

Lovely work as usual Pattie, love the sewing kit. If Viv put her mind to it (what bit she has!!) she'd be ok with the stitching!!

Been so busy with Christmas preparations just finally got a chance to visit your blog. Love all your new work. I think your little sewing kit is fabulous, but perhaps we are never entirely happy with our creations and always feel that they need a little extra "tweaking"

Wishing you all the best for the Christmas season.
