Making Tiny Clothes

I´m working on bear for the Hugglets Fair.
The Fair is very fast approaching
only 5 more weeks to work in



struggling with the clothes
I decided some of them needed some this time


so I have been sewing
and knitting for those little ones


using tiny tiny knitting neddles and yarn


and vintage handkerchiefs for dresses



Here´s a little bunch ready for the fair
oh - maybe I should tell you
they´re only about 4 inch tall
maybe you can imagine the size of the knitting needles.

Have a wonderful weekend

They were on my wish list

Every Girl Needs

a little bit of lace
don´t you think...

The day before we left Italy, we went to the lokal market
and I was very lucky to find a few booths with trims a lace



these are used for italian curtains
I think they were really pretty
Needed to have some...




if you´re wondering what those cotton threads are doing in there
it´s nose thread for the bears :D

I did had a little bit of lace in my stock already
bought home from Portobello Market in London
and I tell  you - it is a little bit
 because lace and trim are so hard to find in Denmark
and if they do have some at the flea markets
they also know to price it well...

I hate to have to be thrifty
and spare when I create
so I decided I had to go get some more when I got home.

and knowing that it wouldn´t be possible here
I turned to Ebay and was lucky enough to
get a few bags


so these goodies have arrived in the studio




perfect for tea dyeing  too




I do find this very pretty
and think it will be great for some more pockets



now stored in an little suitcase I found in my studio.
Not a pretty suitcase with a pocket in or something
I actually have been using it for bear stuff
but though it would look much more prettier with the lace in.

Oh - I love trims and lace.
just can´t get enough can we...

Wishing you a oh so pretty weekend
Tina ♥♥♥

Inspired by...


the Art Tag Class at Paper Cowgirl
tought by Sweet Lisa and
all those beautiful tags made by the participants
seen here and here
and as this class wasn´t 'in my area'
I decided I had to play on my own and give it a try


so
using some beautiful old and worn flashcards as background


I gather some lace, vintage buttons and seambinding


a little bit of bling


some beautiful kalender images from  Mary


and started to play


these are the result,
I´m quite pleased with them actually
I think they came out really pretty.

Wishing you all a wonderful and inspired day

I have to tell you
it´s sooooo hot over here
I know it´s nothing compared to other place, but for this little country
a temperature over 80 is a LOT
and these days it´s about 82-86 degrees
for a person ( read : me) whos favorite time of the year is Fall
this is no fun

anyway

I have been working on a few new Tag Books


using lots of lace


ribbon



and my favorite French Rubber Stamps



this is what came out


french Inspired ofcourse




I really like them
and I´m having so much fun
putting these together.
They will be available in my Etsy later.

I hope you all are enjoying the summer
and don´t suffer too much in the heat :D

Thank you so much for visiting
over here today and
I´m wishing you all a wonderful weekend
