Hello~ and thanks for stopping by!  Today I’m here to tell you about the newest challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow.  As you can see from the title of this post, it’s all about sewing and fashion~   Be sure to stop in and see the creations of our talented guest designer, Zoe Sanderson.  Here’s the card that I came up with…

I used some Tilda papers and punch-out images from the ‘Sewing Bird’ collection from Tilda, that my dear friend Holly sent to me from the Netherlands~  I adore Tilda papers and this collection is a wonderful one!  I just had to use this sweet sewing machine that reminds me of my mother’s old Singer, the one I learned on…

Just for the fun of it, I glued a length of embroidery floss (only 2 of the plies), so that it would appear as if the machine were threaded and stitching the (paper) fabric and black netting that I adhered under the ‘needle’.  A paper flower was also added to the base of the sewing machine(for no particular reason!).  All of the papers are from Tilda, which are double sided to give you lots of options.  The pearl buttons that dress a length of vintage satin ribbon, were cut from one of the sheets, as was the ‘Handmade with Love’ sign…

This little mannequin was dressed up with a flower (colored with Copics), a tiny tag and some black netting that was adhered to the waist and then gathered to the side…

I added a sheet of solid card stock and some embellishments, so the inside is ready for a personal message.

Hopefully,  you will find a bit of time this week or next, to join us in this lovely challenge!
