This last week I've been working on the Friday girl's gifts. I can now show you the finished decorations as we swapped gifts today.
Yes more of Barb's tags. I've lost count of how many decorations I've made so far so I guess that's a strong indication of how much fun I've had (and am still having) playing with them.
The great thing about these is they are just the right size to slip inside a Christmas card and post.
And I've had lots of fun combining the tags with fabric from the stash and new purchases.
I have so many ideas about what I'd like to do with the buttons and tags, I'm not sure where to stop!
It's so exciting when something as simple as a beautiful button or tag can provide the inspiration for so many decorations.
I'm sure I need to make another one using the stripe in the background.
This is a set for my brother and his family. Named so there can be not disputes about which one belongs to who.
The labels are simply tea-dyed cotton tape (because that's what I had in the cupboard and it was the first thing I pulled out) written on with a pigma pen and attached with cross stitches. I used my aplique board (A4 size board with a sheet of fine sandpaper glued to it) to prevent the tape from slipping.
