A Bit of Fabric

My friend Martina from Germany visited us for a few days and we were deep into curtain making and discussing wedding dresses for my daughter who is going to get married in a few months (lol). Having all the fabrics and sewing equipment at hand I created this easy tag which fits nicely with the Tag Tuesday challenge: A Bit of Fabric. I very much enjoyed the process


The paper is from gcd Studios, the stamps from Creative Expressions. I stamped the tailor's dummy in three different colours on fabric , stiffened them with bondaweb, cut them out and glued them to the tag. The fabric flower is made from cotton fabric and attached to the tag together with two buttons (one at the front, one at the back). The final touch are some stamped fabric samples secured with pins.
