I am always on the lookout to try and learn something new when it comes to being creative and that is what I did over the weekend apart from many other things ~ I was very busy. Sometimes all it takes is me seeing a photograph of something and being so inspired that I just have to try it out, and I mean right away!
I was browsing the internet and came across a photo of a little bag that was embellished with silk ribbon roses and that was it ~ I was taken!
Of course as impassioned as I am there was no way I could wait until Monday morning to go out and try and find silk ribbon so I headed into my studio on search for anything I could use and what did I see ... my seam binding! No wonder I love Hug Snug ~ It is one of those things that is versatile and in my case there when I need it. An embroidery frame, scissors, needles and thread and a few other bits and I was ready to start.
After looking at a diagram that showed how you make the rose I attempted my first one.
And this is it ...
... my first ever embroidered seam binding rose!
I actually like it too and after my first attempt of course the second one wasn't far away ...
... and this is it.
This time I used a small piece of an old doilie to embroidered smaller seam binding roses on too.
My roses were just shouting out to be embellished with a few vintage pearls and then they were completed and ready to bloom and the best part of them is ... they might not be perfect and as beautiful as many on the internet but I like them!
And I already know exactly what I am going to us these two little creations for ... to make two more creations with them. What ... no, not telling you that little bit just yet.
Why not pop back soon ... let's say ... tomorrow and then you will be able to see my newest creations then.
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
