Patch Work Hare Suit Case....

I've just finished a Patch Work Hare suitcase, ready for my next Hope and Elvis workshop in November.
That little suitcase had been sitting in my studio, sighing, waiting for a little bit of love and attention.
So I thought I would embroider on my favourite scrips and scraps and see what happened.
I'm always nervous when working on vintage pieces in case I spoil their aged beauty.
I hope I haven't, and I did have fun!

  3. What a fun idea, and no, you did not spoil the suitcase at all. I've found that if I don't like something I'm working on, I have to keep going and make it really over the top - sometimes it works!

    1. Thanks Chrissie,
      MG hasn't modelled for me for a very long time so it was a real trip down memory lane! x

Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
