Warning! There are going to be a lot of photos in this post!
Recently I took part in a mini-album page swap on the Scrapbeach.
The theme was Vintage/Retro sewing room and we had to use primary colours, 2 pins and a female image on our 6" by 6" pages. The pages didn't have to be identical. I decided to take the theme a bit further by making the 1st side of my page represent "Getting ready to sew" and the 2nd side represents the "Final Creation". Nothing like making things complicated! Here goes..
The tailors dummy is one of my snippets and her head is made out of small buttons sewn on to a denim circle. I added a sewing machine charm to the zipper pull.
The zip was white but I coloured it with a Pro marker. The thimble advert comes from a 1949 newspaper we found when renovating our house. The embroidered flowers are sewn over thread offcuts. I have draped some elasticated gingham ribbon around the dummy.
There is a little surprise for the recipient hidden in the fabric pocket!
