Work in Progress

Thought I would share this little project which I am working on at the moment. I got a lovely book for Christmas by Ruth Rae - Layered, Tattered & Stitched and am fascinated by fabric which has been stamped upon. I have also been greatly inspired by the gorgeous work of Carole Brungar, whose blog I discovered during the OWOH event and so I thought it was high time I had a go myself.

I prepared a large piece of fabric - muslin or cotton calico (not sure which) and stamped randomly all over it with many different stamps until it started to look good. It was a bit trial and error but I think I know the kind of look I will go for in the future. I thought I would like to make something heart shaped so cut out a couple of heart shapes. This is as far as I have got - this will be the front and so far I have attached several pieces of old lace, together with an accent scrap of material in a deep turquoise colour. I will be adding some kind of ruffle to the top and some other bits on the front - probably either nice buttons or pretty lace scraps, not sure yet exactly what.
