ACP Week 3, part 4: Crowns
My last post featured my 'Queen' apron - which by the way is still pristine :o) The crown was die cut from a square of denim... the waste of which got me thinking - it was still a perfect complete negative of the crown and so, not liking to see things go to waste....
I've used it to embellish a bag - love this muchly - very happy with how it turned out - and it makes me smile as the check fabric is one of hubby's old shirts (he loves a check shirt!)- he's well 'trained' not to throw out his old shirts and jeans- I have a plan that one day I'll make a quilt or something out of all his checked shirts.. (its on the list in my head of 'projects that I'll get around to eventually')
The motif is bondaweb'd and then machine stitched to the bag - working around the edges and adding some colour - and of course adding some buttons.
Its a really simple bag that'll come in useful for carrying books, magazines or craft stash!
This is the last of the crown projects - tomorrow it'll be something beginning with D and another colour to go with Grey...
