Vintage Little Darling

The theme at Tag Tuesday is: Vintage. I know it is weird but I was not sure at all how to approach it ... that is till I looked at my crochet flowers and then it all became clear (lol): a small crochet tag (8x4cm) which I attached to a very small coat hanger from Woodware. I stitched a little piece of packaging material onto the crochet base
and then decorated the tag with a really sweet image of a little girl all wrapped up to face the cold weather outside (Graphics Fairy)
Some lace and gauze, little pearls stitched on fabric, paper flowers and vintage buttons and a printed word completed the little tag. Have a lovely weekend, Petra.

This is right up my street.
100% precious and such an original idea for the base.

Love this, Petra. It's as if you've taken the pink from your crocheting and added it to her coat, and taken the white from her coat and added it to your tag.
