I saw this purse in one of my Tilda books the other day and thought I'd like to make it. I have made this one out of some Tilda fabrics that I purchased from the UK and of course there is the Tilda rose that I have hand stitched onto the front of it. These are delightful little cosmetic purses from the Sew Pretty Homestyle book. What I love about the Tilda books is the way Tonne explains how to make her patterns. I just love the basic way she explains things...
Also there is the Gathered Rose Tutorial I put up the other day... here is a photo of it pressed flat with an iron.. I just love the look ... better than the first photo, I think anyway. I have made this into a brooch to go onto a bag or whatever.
I just want to say, as I have edited into my previous post. This rose is an idea I have had for a long time. It is inspired by my ribbon rose creations. I have always wanted to make roses out of fabric and not ribbon all the time. I have been doing ribbon roses for about 14years now... I just don't want people to think I go around copying others... I am inspired by others but I am not into copying. Just wanted to make this clear.
as some of you know I have a Cuttlebug
This is a device that is used to emboss paper and cut dies for scrapbooking and cardmaking.
I LOVE paper craft as well as other crafts! as alot of you know
Spotlight (a craft shop franchise) here in New Zealand had a special running last week.
I had seen this owl diecut a number of months ago that I just really wanted... the thing is it was expensive.
So I took the opportunity to purchase it with the special.
Here is what I have been making over the weekend
Cute... dont you think?
I also made some gingerbread men. I have a diecut for a gingerbread man..
My little 3 year old was having alot of fun making these with me
He is an owl lover and of course gingerbread men too!
