September challenge Kraft it Up - fabric and stitching, oh my!!!

The new challenge at Kraft It Up is ready and waiting for you. All you need is a bit of fabric and some thread for stitching, by hand if you like (or machine like I did).

I loved making some little yo-yo flowers for this page - I remember the first time I made one it took about an hour. Now it's a minute - so simple. Tutorials galore on You-Tube (leave a comment if you'd like instructions).

Stitching, felt, buttons, trim, a wonky home-made fabric button, LOL!

I adore this vintage line from October Afternoon, the little girl with the plaid skirt - so sweet!

I used stitching in the corners to make it look more like a frame, with a little ripped vintage music paper. Heaps of that stuff at the op shops.Oh and some paint splatters!
