"" Moments with Moreen: Forget me not

Thursday, 5 August 2010

Forget me not

I finished this little set a while ago but have just got around to taking the photos.


I added a crystal bluebird to the pinkeep.
I loved the Design so much that after I finished the pinkeep I decided to add these little extras.
I made this little box using the instructions from Judy O Dells Flatfold and Friends book.
It is all hand sewn and  lined  with Blue Dupion silk I added another forget me not in a little silver antique jewellery frame,and as a finishing touch I added the silver lock and key charms. 


Here is the inside of the box with the scissor fob.


This is the back of the scissor fob with my initials sewn one over one.


Lastly this is the side view of the pinkeep showing the ribbon I used which matches the scissor fob.


I stitched it all on 32ct  antique white linen and used the threads recommended by Dany.
You can get her charts here
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comments I really appreciate it.
