For those waiting to see who won the Tuesday's Treasures parcel, it will be travelling to...
Susan who blogs at Susan's sewing Space. So the parcel is crossing over to the other side of Australia to Queensland.
I also embroidered this square to put in with the other items in the Travelling Giveaway. Thanks to everyone that entered.
Flour bag Sewing.
I am still working through that Flour bag full of scraps working out what can be made. I had these two rose machine embroideries that were test samples. I added the dragonflies on this one to jazz it up a bit.
I used some pink braid that Lisa sent across from New Zealand on these projects. The only fabric that wasn't from the Flour bag was some cream Homespun that was used in the backing. Now I have two small table toppers/place mats. If you are wondering the roses are "Lorraine Lee" This rose was bred by Alistair Clark a famous Australian rose breeder.
The past week I have been doing lots of sewing, some I can show like this Summer nightie and others which are for presents. I have had this fabric for absolutely ages, I must have picked it up at Textile Traders when they had one of their buy 2 metres get one free sale.I still have enough fabric left over for a child's item.
