What A........

Pear!. I don't know what it is about fabric pears but I've always wanted to make one and never got around to it. I saw this one here and I just had to make one! I wanted a vintage look so I rummaged through the pile of old linen and found an old pillow case.



A few leaves were made from book pages and ..... yes florists wire and dipped in glass glitter... this stuff just looks so vintage.



Some bits of recycled jewellery and scraps of fabric were secured with a lovely pearl pin. I'm sure this won't be the last one I make.... they're just the right size and shape for all kinds of fabrics and embellishments.
Ltdo has Your Favourite Technique for it's theme this week....... it's stretching the theme a little but but flavour of the month fo me is real glass glitter..... fab stuff
