July/August 2014 Giveaway

Giveaway is closed. Winners announced here.

Guys,


I wanted my July/August 2014 Giveaway to include something handmade that I love making. Some of you probably know I love to make brooches and that's the something handmade I'm including in the prizes this round.

So for my July/August Giveaway, I'm picking 2 winners. The 2 prizes are:
1) 1m of a light blue pirate theme fabric + a flower felt brooch - we'll call it flower-flower.
2) 1m of a dark blue pirate theme fabric + a tatted lace brooch - we'll call it tatted lace.

Both winners will also get 1 of my bag patterns and she can choose from my bag pattern empire below.

Both brooches took forever to make. The felt flower is fairly easy to make and this one was made some time ago. The tatted lace is more challenging of course. First I have to make the lace motif which although is a very basic beginner tatted motif, you still need to make it stitch by stitch by hand. Unlike sewing, you can't use a seam ripper and you have to pay attention while tatting. I used a delicious Lizbeth thread. Looking at all the different colours on the lace makes me drool. After the motif is completed, I anchor the lace to a indigo felt by hand, stitch by stitch.

 Flower-flower.

Tatted lace.

I prefer tatted lace! I'm curious how did you stitch the tatted piece onto the piece of felt. Hehe.

Hi,
I enjoy reading your blog. Keeps me in touch with my Singapore memories. I lived in Singapore for 10 years before moving to New Zealand. I can connect with most of the things you write about in your blog. I love your dolls and your bags. I wish I had known your blog before I had left Singapore 4 yrs ago so that I could have had a chance to meet you in your stalls.
Btw, I love the flower- flower....
Cheers....

I love your brooches - especially flower-flower!! The fabric you put the brooch with is super sweet :) Oh and I wish I lived closer so you could teach me tatting. That and crochet are on my to-learn lists!

Both of them are really pretty! The stitching is really neat. I like the tatted lace the most though! I can see the effort done to make it.

The broaches are both lovely. I think I would have to make my choice based on the fabric, I which case I choose the tatted lace.

Both of these are so pretty, Jane! My favorite is the flower-flower!
I tried to learn to tat from my grandmother when I was about 10. I had a terrible time with it. I never learned!
