Sew Fashionable

For the next two weeks the challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is called SEW FASHIONABLE and we want to see vintage or shabby chic cards or other projects that depict sewing.

For this challenge we have another Guest Designer joining us.  Zoe Sanderson is a crafter from the UK so please make her feel welcome, check out her blog and leave her some love.

From the bottom up, here is how I created this card:

I started with some cream card stock from Staples for the blank and then added a background of striped paper from My Mind's Eye. that I distressed with my scissors.  I found the McCall's pattern photo online and the vintage sewing machine image came from The Graphic Fairy.

The little piece of metal at the top is from Michaels, the metal hanger is from 7 Gypsies and the button is from my stash.  The piece of lace also came from my stash and I think it was from my husband's late Aunt's sewing basket originally.  The tape measure is piece of clip art that I altered slightly.  The flowers are from Prima and the brad is from Making Memories.  Everything has been inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger.  The little metal scissors charm were in my stash but I have no idea where they came from.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Inky Impressions - So Charming
