Oh I'm such a lucky girl. My friend Dianna had a garage sale recently and sent me a text asking if I'd like a box of trims her mum had given her that Dianna hadn't used, and if I didn't want them she'd put them in the garage sale. Well I didn't read her text till AFTER the garage sale and was SO happy that she'd put them aside for me, just in case. Thank you Dianna! Want to see all the goodies? Oh it was SO exciting opening this box! By the way, what do you think was originally in this box? It says GE (General Electric) Heiress.
Just like Christmas! The colourful woven patterns are my favourites. Most are from the seventies and they were wound around pieces of cereal box packaging with "Use by Dec 1978" etc on them. LOL
I wanted to make something for Dianna and her mum to say thank you and made them each one of these, using only the trims they gave me (plus felt for the back). I also made one for myself. :)
And I've already used some of the broderie anglaise trim on my Christmas cards. YAY!
