ROSE SHABBY / SHABBY ROSES

Care amiche,
spero abbiate trascorso uno splendido martedì!
Le ferie sono purtroppo terminate, il caldo ci ha dato un pò di meritato respiro e, dopo la pausa estiva, la creatività è tornata alle stelle.
Nel sistemare un cassetto di scampoli mi sono ritrovata degli scampolini di vecchi lenzuoli che avevo messo da parte qualche anno fa per farne delle bambole di pezza. Ho pensato invece di farne delle strisce, di tingerle con il thé e, dopo averle fatte asciugare al sole, di realizzare delle rose shabby, un pò stropicciate e sfrangiate come piace a me da sfoggiare come stravaganti spille. Ne ho fatte di diverse fogge e dimensioni. Che ve ne pare?

Dear friends,
hope you're having a fabulous Tuesday!
Well, vacation is over and although I'm now getting back into the swing of my daily routine, thanks to the cooler temps after the laziness of the past weeks I'm now in the creative mood again.
Found some white muslin in my stash of spare fabric scraps which I had originally intended to use to make rag dolls.
Decided to tea-stained it instead, let it dry in the sun, cut it into strips and make some pretty shabby  tattered frayed roses. Took my hot glue gun and glued pins to the back of the roses to turn them into extravagant floral brooches. Made them in different forms and sizes. What do you think?
I'm already wearing them and find they add a chic touch even to the simplest of my summer tops and blouses.






Hugs
Rita

  9. Ciao Rita, grazie per essere passata da me così ho avuto l'occasione di visitare il tuo meraviglioso blog...leggo nel tuo profilo che ci sono parecchie cose che ci accomunano oltre allo stile shabby e questo mi fa piacere.
    Sono appena diventata tua follower ma mi sono accorta che la foto del commento è diversa da quella dei sostenitori...comunque in entrambe è la mia boxerona Gaia!
    Un abbraccio e buon sabato sera
