Good morning everyone, hope you are well! I am here with my DT project for Crafty Ribbons this challenge which is 'Anything Goes with Ribbon'. Last Summer my favourite snap shut glasses case broke-the snaps were poking through the material and hurting me when I opened the case so I decided to cut the case up and keep the snaps to hopefully upcycle them in a new project. Crafty Ribbons have just released their fab new Vintage butterflies ribbon range so I wanted to make a project with them I would use often as I love them so much!
I had some offcuts of denim so I chose that as the outside of the case as its tough and resilient. I began by cutting out my case (a two long pieces, one for outside and the other of a jersey material for outside. I also cut out a length of cotton batting to pad the case with. I started by sewing on my ribbons to embellish the outside of my case. I then sewed together my case, slipping in the snaps at the last moment then finishing this stitching on a treadle sewing machine as the fabric was too thick to sew on my lovely electric sewing machine!
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Thank you for looking and all the lovely comments :-)
