This fabric tag came about because I knew I had a piece of wool felt in the exact beige I needed for this week's challenge and I'm still loving making tags :)
I'm afraid I don't know where I found this wonderful vintage Christmas image, but I just LoVe it! I'm not sure, but I'm assuming it's from a Christmas card from the fifties, a time in design I just adore.
I was intrigued by the use of the bright blue. The bit of something that was hanging around my craft room in this particular shade of blue was a piece of sequin waste. I wasn't sure my sewing machine would like it but it was fine, and it's certainly something I'd never normally have thought to include. That's what I love about this colour challenge, it makes me put colours and materials together that I wouldn't use normally.
With my tag display in mind, I went for a buttons theme, cos I just LoVe buttons :)
I free machined the word button repeatedly along one of the long edges on my tag, felted and sewed scraps of fabric to it and added the buttons last - and very relaxing it was too, just what I needed!
I'm afraid I didn't make it round you all with comments this week, really sorry! I'd like to wish all of our play date cafe visitors a wonderful Christmas. If you haven't made it over to the cafe, there's a treat in store as Julie introduced our new design team members each day this week. Whilst you're there, check out our design team's projects with this week's colours, there are some great ideas!
