Over the weekend I had the urge to pull out my sewing machine and make something. I learned to sew when I was around 9. My first purchase when I moved away from home was a sewing machine. My mom took me to Sears and I bought (on credit) the best one I could afford......which was $250. I still own that sewing machine (its out in the garage) but I have a newer computerized Viking that I use now. I cant live without my sewing machine! I had an idea in my head and went to my favorite fabric store to find the perfect fabric. This is what I came up with.
I got the image from The Graphics Fairy and just LOVE it. The ruffle is made from the lining that I removed from a vintage curtain. I knew someday I would use it for something.
The image was printed onto a fabric transfer (that I bought at Walmart) and then ironed onto burlap. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.
I can’t wait to make more. I’m thinking Easter……
