Wedding dress to a book.....D

It's time for the pinkies challenge this week.  

A colleague of mine gave me her beautiful wedding dress t use in my art and let me tell you it has taken me 2 months to cut into it as it was so beautiful.  I made her a pin cushion book as a memento of her wedding dress.  I will be making my own pins for the book - the pre made ones are just props lol. I got the idea from Jennings644 on youtube - go check her out - fab projects and tutorials.

I won't be rattling on and on so I will just list what I used for this project.


satin from dress
lace and applique from the dress train
edging lace from my stash

And that is that lol

First are the pics of the lace from the dress all spread out on table and also the bodice

Now for my project

Anyway thats it from me tonight.  Hope you enjoyed your visit and please call back again soon.

Hugz and love

  8. Elaine this is just beautiful, I have to agree it would have been so difficult to cut into, but what a gift to have been given and such a lovely way to say thank you with your memento. I have my own Wedding Dress with beautiful appliques and lace with lots of satin but I just don't have the heart to cut into it, so just keep scouring the charity shops!!
