This is what I've been up to lately.

I've painted most of the images and then stiched them into cute little patches.  Some of this fabric was my great-grandmothers!

My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends-
It gives a lovely light!

What a great idea! How did you paint them? And where did you get the inspiration for so many patches? I always run out of ideas after about 2 ... Lovely   Wink

Those patches are terrific! Can you make potpourri sachets out of them?

Sorry the pictures aren't very good, I used a camera-phone.

I'm sure it would be super easy to make sachets like these.  I saw an article once in Victoria magazine about a woman who makes beautiful sachets in the shapes of things like shoes and dresses in rich fabrics.  I love everyday objects around the house that are unexpectantly detailed and creative. 

For design inspiration I visit sites with  stamps and collage or scrapbooking.  I have a couple of design books by Dover that come with a CD-ROM to print out the designs for free use and use carbon paper to transfer the image onto the fabric. 

I'm working on making some "pocket patches" for those who crave just one more.
