Beaded Trim

I decided to jazz up a red blouse with a beaded trim and there was no time to go and buy some. I improvised by painting some lace red with acrylic paint. Once dry I washed the lace to check that the paint did not wash out- acrylic paint is usually quite colour fast. I then stitched to the blouse and beaded in the spaces. It was so easy and relaxing to do.

A banner

I made a Frayed Round the Edges banner taking the design from my business card. I transferred the design to fabric and enhanced with embroidery and some sparkle.
