so I thought I'd share with you this altered journal I made a couple of months ago
for a swap with my Art Party group.
I decided to do a seamstress theme, here is the front cover:
And these are a few of my favorite layouts from inside the journal:
I just have sooo many vintage buttons, lace, sewing patterns and notions
so it was great to be able to put them all together in this journal.
But my favorite resource for pictures and text was a 1927 Butterick sewing book!
The big fabric flowers I picked up at a thrift shop, someone must have meant them for appliques because they were ALREADY CUT OUT!!
My hands were so happy about that!
But the best thing is that my friend Marti was the recipient of the book!
Thanks for stopping by, you may like to pop in at
