Tag Tuesday - A bit of Fabric

This week we had to use fabric on our tag. Great, I always have snippets of all kinds of fabric lying about. I covered a tag in a morceau of a hand loomed antique French linen, which was left over from another project. I printed this sweet little image of a girl and her dolly onto cotton fabric, made two tiny little lace flowers for the top of the tag and a larger one for the bottom, as well as two little fabric fans. all that was left to do was embellish the tag a little further with some German glass glitter and attach some seam binding and ribbon. All done.

Thanks for coming to visit and for leaving a comment.
An embellisher is like a sewing machine with 5 hooked needles but no thread. It 'felts' fabrics together.
Confused with that explanation, i think I am too!!

Beautiful! The only thing that would make it purrfect is...yeah, if the little girl was holding a cat ;) But you knew that didn't you?!?

I hope you are staying warm!

erstaunlich, wie "leicht" das bei dir klingt... "nur dies" - "nur das" - "fertig"

das sieht soooo hübsch aus, und ich WEISS, wie schwer das ist, ich habs versucht *gg*

Adorable! One of these days I am going to swing the doors open on my "paper" armoire in my dining room and have myself some fun!

Warm blessings,
