This is the Gentle Romance Kit:
Lots of soft, pretty colours, so of course I had to make something for my little girl using this kit! She was a bit jealous of my altered vest top, so I altered a white one for her:
I used two 7" strips of the pink lace trim to stitch onto the shoulders:
And then pinched a bit of the bottom of the vest top and stitched it to hold it up - I could then sew a 7" strip of the floral fabric behind it, so it peeps through. And I added the cream crochet flower, a fabric covered button, and the fimo heart button:
My little girl especially likes the heart, she keeps looking down at it!
I used most of the rest of the kit on this layout:
I love this photo of my daughter from a farm visit, she wasn't convinced it was a good idea when she was told she could stroke the lambs!
I machine stitched the fabric on, just adding the pleats as I went, and adding the crochet flower near the woolly sheep:
I used up some more of the kit on this birthday card:
|Card Blank = Papermania A6 Kraft Cards, Stamp = Whisper's Words, |
Paper Scrap Unknown, Fake Stitching done with Uniball Signo White Gel Pen.
I like the layout of the elements on the card, it makes me think of a layered cake. I've turned it into a quick card sketch for you if you'd like to try it out:
Let me know if you give this sketch a go!
I used the last two bits from the kit - the flat felt flowers, to make this brooch:
With a little embroidery and a few beads added. Here's my lovely daughter modelling it on her hat:
The Gentle Romance Kit is available in my Etsy shop. Please take a look!
Hope you're having a lovely Sunday, x
