Vintage Sewing Hanging


I created this  piece for a 5x7 Vintage Sewing Themed swap over at Kindred Souls.
It's off to Idaho today.
Many of the pieces on this are from an antique shop where I pick up quite a bit of sewing items.
Patterns, pins, buttons, trim.... Even the doll hanger.


This image is transferred onto muslin using Transfer Artist Paper or TAP. LOVE this product! It really is one of THE BEST transfer papers I have used.




The Dress form is one of my favorite Tim Holtz Bigz Die. I worked it on paper first, with acrylic paint, added the punchinella, then mounted it to another dressform cut from Grungepaper for stability.



Then lovely button is vintage, and the piece of fabric is silk, from a piece of Artsy Fartsy Fiber by Ten Seconds Studios. The skirt is a coffee filter I dyed using colorwashes by Stamp Zia.










These closeups may show the texture of the Dress form and the color variation of the skirting.
