Toile Creations and Winner!

The toile fabric is all used up! Each time I work with toile I end up falling in love with it even more...I don't know if it's the pretty ladies in bustly dresses or what, lol, I just can't get enough.

So, for this week I made a few new items that I haven't done before, and I'm so pleased with the results. I didn't have a lot of the fabric, so I resorted to decoupage yet again to make the most of what I did have.

First, the giveaway item...

Some wooden letters that spell LOVE, decoupaged and ready to hang with pretty little bows. :-)


Once again, so simple to do, a wonderful way to use up scraps, and the result just makes me smile!


It was lots of fun trying to figure out the placement for the letters, so that you get just a peek of one particular lady or the pretty trees or the lamb.


I made two sets, so the other is up for sale on Etsy here. I think I'll definitely be making more of these letters, I find decoupage almost theraputic, I love to just switch something on Netflix and sit and paint glue on things and see the fabric bond like magic, like they were meant to be together. There is definitely a sense of instant gratification!

Ok ok, enough about that...next up are some sweet votives I made, again just using Mod Podge to glue on the fabric to some old glass votives I had sitting around.



I just love how the light shines through. :-)


These are up for sale here.

And finally, I did do a bit of sewing! I made something similar to my usual notebook covers, but instead of small notebooks I used composition notebooks, which allowed me a little more room to embellish. ;-)


Isn't the flower fun? And the ribbon was a last minute addition that kind of spontaneously happened, which I LOVE!


The great thing is, I was able to stock up on a bunch of composition notebooks from all the after school stuff being clearanced, yay for frugality!


I have two of these available in my shop here.

Alright, now for this week's winner....
