Type of item: Functional
Two fat quarters flannel fabric [from quilting stash] 1/2 yd. coarse natural muslin Buttons [from my buttom tin] Laces/Trim [from my lace box] Silk Frog Closure [from cording box] Hand-beaded Drops [from my design table] I coffee-dyed the lace and trim, and utlized a toggle closure because I didn't have any kind of zippers on hand. The point was to use only what I had on hand.
What was your inspiration?
I love all things Antique---
What are you most proud of?
That I COMPLETED it. That it did not remain an unfinished project. But I'm also proud of the hand work that I did; the beadwork and the hand-dying. But I also did alot of hand sewing.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't be afraid to not use a pattern. Take some time and think things out.
