Crafty Ribbons Challenge-Stitches Real or Faux

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my project for our Stitching real or faux challenge at Crafty Ribbons Challenge. I had the lovely Hello Kitty ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and found some pretty complementing cotton remnants, and felt in my stash so decided to make my own Lavender Sleep Mask :-) I cut the material and sewed on the hello kitty ribbon on the right side of the fabric first. I then sewed the felt and fabric right side together, then left a little hole so I could pull it right side out. Then I filled the inside with dried lavender and rice. I then sewed the little hole using invisible stitching. They make really nice but inexpensive and easy to create gifts.

So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
