What a beautiful package!
I especially adore the embroidery on that bag, that is amazing!
I think if it was mine, I would be patting it all day, I love the feel of velvet( I know, I'm weird)
Thank you!
I used to have a vintage black velvet dress that had belonged to my Gram, but I had to stop wearing it because I was rubbing a bare patch near the hem from feeling it all day!


Great embroidery on the bag! That's the second time this week I've seen something embroidered with bullion roses and thought "I have so got to learn to do that!"
They are srsly easy- I made my first three on scrap, and then started stitching them on the bag. The nice thing about bullion roses is that if you mess one petal up you can easily cover or disguise it with another petal.

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

That's one of the things I value most in handicraft techniques - how easy is it to hide your mistakes!

Right? If I can't cover my mistakes as I go, I'm not doing it!

I'm guessing life is keeping Staar84 busy, so I hope she doesnt mind if I post pics of what I sent. Smiley
sorry in advance for the many pics, I love pics!

Thank you for posting pics! Sorry I didn't post any, I got really sick and didn't want to get everything germy. I have to be honest, I'm glad I got flaked on because ScrappySue's angel package was SO awesome! Thank you so much!!!
