The QB5 gals recently did a swap and Carole sent us all a lovely 'snippet roll' After seeing her tutorial here I was inspired to have a go! I decided mine would be a 'story spool' based on TAP transfers, using only fabric and embellishments.
And embellish I did! totally went to town with the lace, buttons and ribbons!
I sewed a ribbon to the top and threaded it through the reel as a hanger
once you have completed the backing it would make a great 'stitchery on the go' project! you could also create a whole story on it! Valentines, Easter, Christmas and more!
I punched some holes in a little wooden heart
I dyed the reel using gesso and tea bags. This was a fun project, thank you Carole!
Oh I love this to bits, I would love to have a go at one of these. How did you get the pictures on the material? It would be a lovely project to take away and do on holiday as the supplies would be minimal!!
ooooo I can see that you had wonderful fun with this Margaret!!! Its really lovely and tactile xxx
Whooo I love this Margaret! I've got a few empty spools, I may just have to make one of these!!
