I’ve accumulated a substantial amount of pretty fabric, ribbon and lace from Gauche Alchemy kits. You never know what you’ll get in your kit and that’s part of the fun.
I wanted to use them to make a fabric project and my blank, dirty canvas bag was the perfect surface to try it on.
There was this ugly dark stain right smack in the middle of it. So I grabbed the various fabric, ribbon and lace I have in my GA stash…
… and voila! Ugly dark stain gone! (Sorry for sounding like a detergent commercial. lol.)
Ahem. And may I brag just a little bit that I HATE sewing. I hate getting little microscopic dots of blood on my fingers, which I always, always get when I sew by hand. And since I don’t own a sewing machine, well, it just takes LOTS of patience.
To make the flower, I stacked up my pieces of fabric, ribbon and lace on top of each other. They were actually scraps shaped in rectangles. I simply rounded the corners. Then I sewed them in the middle to form a flower.
Oh and the wonderful thing about this kind of project: I’ve seen this done on t-shirts and cute little onesies on Etsy. So if you like sewing, or even if you don’t (like yours truly), try it and hope you have as much fun as I did.
