Firstly can I Thank everyone for your lovely comments on my stitch in time canvas, these are very much appreciated. As promised I am back now with the step by step photos which show you how the elements were put together in a little more detail. Here is a little reminder of the finished piece.
so (or should that be sew) here we go. I gathered a collection of eclectic elements fabrics and mount board plus the Bigz sewing room die
I cut four extra windows so I could glue them together to make a desk. You can see I have used different colours of mount board but as I was painting them this did not matter. To make the desk shape from the window I have just cut off the bottom sill and the two vertical strips in the centre.
The sewing desk was given the same treatment as the manikin with the paint and wood grain stamp. I glued the rolls of material together into two bundles of 8 and because the were from the original window panes the fitted perfect side by side on the table shelf.
More materials gathered, Tim Holtz dapper pad and Indigo blu stamp sets 'In Stitches' and
'Sewing mends the soul'
I collected a few of the tiny scraps up from my desk and glued them to the bottom of the sewing table, after all we all have scraps on the floor when we are crafting don't we??
