Mama's sewing pocket...


























Goood Morn...and happy Monday!  It is Crafty Secrets linky party time!   We were all challenged to create something for Mother's day, babies, graduation, or gardening.  I chose to create a personal gift you could give to Mama!  I grew up with my Mother sewing and so I created several sewing theme pockets with matching tags.  I used images from sewing ephemera kit,  and paper from the creating vintage with vintage patterns cd.    1) I printed out the images I wanted and scored the blue bird envelope first and gathered my other images together.  2) I than grabbed my file folder and cut it down covering it in papers and stitched up the sides. 3) I glued chipboard to the backsides of my spool images to create more depth to them and inked the edges.  4) I than grabbed my layers and images and started adding them to the file folder and added my trims.  5) From here I created my inside tag adding goodies as I went.  This is the time to really play and add things to make your creation really unique.  On each piece as you can see I repeated my colors.....red, blue, and yellow.  This way even when you have different images and adornments things stay cohesive.  I also repeated my washi taps and ribbons all adding to the theme.   I had to snap pics of the other side of the blue bird envelope....isn't it cute?  Loved it so much I had to print out a mini of it and used it on the inside tag!  I adore how these images all work so well with my vintage embellishments...a match made in heaven!  Hope you enjoy...and check out all the other ladies gorgeous creations!  hugs, cherry

What a fabulous set of Sewing Tags and Pockets Cherry! You combined our Sewing Ephemera so well with the papers you used from CD 1. They have your fun signature color combos with the cherry reds, yellow and blues.

Great job, thanks for sharing in our Crafty Secrets April Linky Party
