my homage to vintage scraps...

I was chatting to a friend who runs her own craft business and we were discussing how to make our work more enjoyable.  I should say at this point that we both love our jobs but there are times when we need to do something a bit different.  For instance, I love my Emma mannequin, even after making hundreds, but sometimes I need to let my creative side out!  It's so important to give yourself  "free time" to experiment and not feel guilty about it...you stumble across new ideas and methods and recharge your batteries!
With that in mind I bought a bundle of lovely vintage scraps...
aren't they gorgeous? vintage florals, abstracts, barkcloths and cottons...
 I laid them out, choosing my favourites, and placing them in the best location before sewing them together to form a complete length...
 and here she is...


With my creative need taken care of for a few more days I can very happily get back to beautifully simple, elegant Emma.
