Craft worthy...









Hi there and happy Thursday!  I am so excited to be posting here at RRR for the first time!  I decided to create a sweet sewing pocket using several of my favorite Really Reasonable Ribbons.  I started with a manilla folder.  I cut it down to the size I wanted..approximately 5 x7.  I covered it in some fun papers and added a little stamping detail at the top.  I added some yummy allison crochet lace to the bottom.  Next I added a few toppings like a doily, chipboard painted dress form, chipboard letters spelling sew, buttons, and a Prima flower.   To the dress form I added some beading for a necklace and some sweet Beatrice white crochet lace to the bottom of  the skirt.  I topped the pocket off with some gorgeous silky crush rose ribbon by May Arts.  This ribbon is beautiful and makes the best bows.   I also nestled a little wooden spool wrapped with more Beatrice crochet lace to the inside of my bow for fun, along with a stick pin.   It was than time to make tags....I collected things with a craft and sewing theme and just had fun layering with my embellishments and papers.  I carried more of the crochet lace onto my tags using the Penelope lace in natural on several tags.  I topped all of them off with some seambinding in pink that I grunged up.  I used some Tim Holtz ink to shabby it up a bit and hand crickled it.  After that I just nestled all my goodies in the pocket.  This would make a great gift for a sewing lover or a great idea for Mother's day.   Hope you enjoyed!  Thanks for letting me share.  hugs, cherry

So beautiful. The corset image I have seen you use a few times, do you remember who makes it? Is it a stamp that you cut out or a chipboard piece? Thanks so much for sharing.
