Sorry AGAIN for the lack of posts.....I'm workin' hard for the money over here, and there hasn't been a lot of time to blah-blah-blah about the fun projects lately....but they are a-happening, bit by bit!
Anyhoo, here's a lil' something I finished this week while commuting to work. I take TONS of public transportation every day, and always have sewing projects with me to pass the time efficiently/keep hope alive.
Mostly, I make rosettes. Lots of them...like this one here, which is a full cardigan knitted ruffle recycled from a old sweater...I LOVE the sparkly Lurex thread...It's so 80's!!
The silver leaves are sold by-the-yard at Stone Mountain and Daughter Fabrics in Bizzerkley.
They come in silver and a pretty, natural green ultrasuede. I love having them on hand for stuff like this.
The underside of the rosette is neatly finished with an antiqued copper barette.
I must say, these metal clips are wonderful, and can be easily worn in the hair, on a hat, or in the lapel of a jacket.
More pretty things to come!!
