For Mothers Day I found a beautiful pattern of some snowdrops with the word "Mother" twining through them and decided to stitch it up for my Mum. I was orginally going to do a pillow ornament finish with it, but I thought it would only be stuck in a drawer then, so on finding Vonna's tutorial on a flatfold I decided to give it a go.
The hardest part was finding matching fabric and embellishments at my local craft store as it isn't on the largest size. Anyway I was lucky enough to find a lovely rose/pink fabric, a mint green cording and some beautiful satin green ribbon and a larger brown/pink ribbon with flowers. I was amazed at the way it came together, it took me a while because I wanted everything to be perfect, but I love the end result. I also found a perfect purple dragonfly charm that I added to the front of the design aswell.
My Mum adores it and it proudly sits on her bedside drawer.
I will definately dabble in this finishing techique again, it is soo different, and a classy way to display your work and you can really experiment with your colour choices and embellishments.
Until next time
