DCM - Haberdashery



This weeks dare was set by the lovely Gillian......


G'day all, Gillian here, and it's my turn to dare you all this week
Your card can be any theme you like, just as long as it's got something you'd find in a Haberdashery Department on it
Alright then, grab that old sewing basket of yours or raid your sewing machine drawer, have a look at what creative bits are hidding away there....maybe it's buttons, a zip, hook & eye's, ribbons, braids, Dressmaking patterns, tape measures,Pins & Needles, lace, safety pins or embroidery thread....
so many wonderful little treasures just waiting to be added to your next card :O)
I'm going to add one more rule....
Yes you may stitch on your card, but that can't be your only haberdashery item....

I needed to make a card for someone who requested a card with an elephant on so as my time is limited i've used the opportunity to do both at once.

My sewing box ingredients are the fancy blue embroidery thread on the elephant and the dangly bits at the bottom (don't know what to call them) which i cut of a skirt ages ago (cos some fell off) they've been lurking in my sewing box ever since so thanks Gillian for giving me a reason to use them.
