I am so happy to be guest designing today at A Vintage Journey for their "Sew Special" Challenge! The design team is extremely talented and the challenges are always my favorite to play along in.
The challenge was to use some type of fabric (Burlap, linen, etc) and be sewing inspired. I used fabric and I even sewed my buttons on which was an effort for me!
I used a mix of stencils and distress stains to create my background fabrics strips. I layered them and added a few random stitches. If I knew how and had a sewing machine I would have added a few lines of stitches.
The image is from the printers block found at a local flea market and it was fun stamping it on the fabric.
I died the tape measure to coordinate and cut some strips to accent. The eye hooks seemed like a fun detail to add to my fabric.
