I mentioned that Cosmo Cricket had an online class on their blog. I made the fabric flowers and showed them to you yesterday. Well, this is what I did with my fabric flowers!
What I didn't tell you yesterday is that the fabric is from my daughters' Halloween costumes! It's the leftover fabric that my mother-in-law sent to me once she finished their costumes. Now, I'm not sure that I've ever mentioned this before, but my mother-in-law is wonderful, and she made the girls' Halloween costumes for years! I'm talking out-of-this-world, amazing costumes! They were clowns/jesters, Hershey's kisses (these were the BEST costumes EVER!), Princesses, Dorothy and Little Red Riding Hood, 50's girls (complete with felt poodle skirts!), etc. I mean, these costumes are knock-your-socks off costumes! So, every time the costumes were made, there was extra fabric. I have all of the girls costumes downstairs in Rubbermaid bins, folded nicely, with the extra fabric, and the original patterns. I seriously treasure these costumes! So, when the fabric flowers were shown, I knew I had fabric to use, and then it hit me that THIS is what I wanted to make! This is a little wall hanging! You can just see the ribbon at the top where it hangs from.
The photo is an extra wallet print, and the board is about an 8 1/2" square. I used all Cosmo Cricket Haunted scraps that I had left from some Halloween layouts that I worked on. To me, the fabric flowers and the lace (which is from the Dorothy costume) just MAKE this project! I love this!! So, what do you think? Please click on it to see it larger! I'm thrilled with the way this turned out. Very easy, and I'll treasure it always! I should probably make another one for my mother-in-law!
I hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
