Here's my design team sample! I altered this little (inexpensive) beauty case for Paige. There is a gorgeous cottage feel which creates such an atmosphere when mixing gingham and floral together. Here I used floral and gingham quilting fabric to line this little case - Prima flowers and some fabric flowers to dress it up and a strip of Prima Ruby paper to hold the bottom part of the gathered gingham (in the case) in place. I also made a little pocket out of lace and prima paper for the inside of the lid.
I just couldnt leave the gingham and floral alone!! I cut out the flowers and leaves from the floral fabric! This is my mother and my aunty! I've used Prima paper and flowers. Ooooh and some cream vintage lace, a vintage crocheted flower and red button from RUBY ST DESIGNS! RUBY STREET DESIGNS
Above LO is of my mother(11yrs) - she was taking part in a 'Peddlar's Parade' fundraising at the school fair. Her grandmother made toffees and they are just about all gone from her tray! PLAYFELLOWS Ooooh if only you could see the pic more....my mum and aunty are wearing those fabulous 'jodphurs' of the times! (about late 1940-ish) The title and the silouette I scalpelled from an old piano book! BATHING
