Tag Tuesday....Vintage...


and the transformation of a scarf....

i had this bright idea to make lacy scarves but they didnt look very nice on, so ive been debating about what to do with them....

i decided that some cut off would make a nice tag for Tag Tuesday...and being vintage, well that was just perfect.... using lots of vintage laces from doilys, tablecloths and table cloths...

i then added the flower made from singed organza , tulle and satin using doily as a base.......
i love making these flowers :)






then luce put it around her wrist and i lost it...its now a cuff :)



lucy is not that orange in real life, really !



Think i might cut up the rest and make cuffs for the next market :)Thank Luce!!

I'm sure that would have looked lovely as a scarf, but the tag looked so pretty - and such a neat way to wear it in the end!
