What a great theme for a tag! It had me rooting through my vintage sewing supplies as soon as I read it. But of course, as usual, things turned out very differently from what I had set out to create. I blame it all on the Graphics Fairy, lol. I wanted to use one of her images of an antique dress form on the tag. And then I saw gorgeous old scissors on her image collection, and all of a sudden, vintage sewing had gone steampunk!! Can you imagine, me having even a hint of steampunk on a tag? Guess there is a first for everything.
So I created a faint background of a vintage Coats Threads ad and coloured the dress form slightly.
I created a skirt out of the antique scissors, silvered them with the Clear Star Gelly Roll pen, made a necklace out of vintage hooks and eyes, and a belt out of vintage poppers. Added a little flower made from antique lace trim, some MOP buttons, and a little ruffle made from vintage McCall's dressmaking paper. Oh, and a teeny little vintage sequin.
Here is my "Vintage Sewing " gone-slightly-steampunk tag -
I had oodles of fun with this one!
