NICECRANE DESIGNS...BEAUTIFUL IMAGES.....

Hi Everyone,
Well I've been having a play... I have always wanted to make a fabric Hanging....so I hope you like it... It's my first I got the inspiration from You-Tube where lots of these are made...My main focal point was this amazing image from NICECRANE DESIGNS  The Gabrielle Ray Vintage Photo's Sheet... so here goes...
Warning photo heavy... sorry I hope I don't bore you....

 I started with a double layer of heavy cotton for the base, Then I added a large doily to the background which you can just see as I covered it with lots of lace... The Beautiful Dragon fly I got at a car boot sale for 30pence
 Don't you think this Image is Gorgeous....she is coloured in the sheet but I changed her to black & white..
 I added some more doily's around her & lots of flowers
 All the flowers are handmade from muslin cloth & cotton cloth I got the idea from You Tube I will put up the links at the end...
 Yet more lace & pearls & seam binding..
 The stick pins I made for this project, the below pic is the piece hanging in my craft room... I loved making this I want to do more I hope in time I will get better...
   Thank you so much for your visit today..... Hugs May x x x
