Show us Some Stitching at TioT


Hello, it's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight  it's 'Stitch It'  and as usual it's up to you what you make as long as there's some stitching - real or faux.

I haven't used my Dress form die for a long time, so this was a great opportunity.  I cut 2 from white card, stained the base and top of one with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide, the other was trimmed to leave just the body, to which I glued some printed linen and trimmed to shape.

The DP was trimmed and pieced and I machine stitched the border, I used a Rose stencil with DIs and then stamped and clear embossed the G 45 and Tim Holtz words.

The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Have a great day,

Avril xx
