This is my card entry for TGF's Farm Fresh Friday challenge for the week. It's my first FFF. I don't know why I wait til almost the last minute to participate. It's the pressure of the deadline, I suppose. So the challenge was to incorporate some sewing or even faux sewing on 2 layers of DP or cardstock. I have a sewing machine under my craft table and I haven't used it at all! It's a few years old already and I bought it cause I wanted to learn to sew but never really got around to it. I didn't use it for this challenge either. I used my paper piercer that I just got and hand sewed the outline of the clouds in the sky and some of the "waves" in the ocean DP.
So while I was cleaning out my storage room this past weekend I found all this felt! Ahhhh! So I made a little palm tree for Dress Me Ian to cool off under. There's some hand stitching on the leaves and the tree trunk.
I used some yarn for the bottom scallop portion and just weaved it through. Don't look too closely at my coloring on Ian. I was running out of ink in my Copic pen. But I'm happy I just got new ones from All That Scraps today! It's always fun to get new crafty things.
Anyway, hope you're having a good summer. It's almost back to school for the kids. Thanks for reading!
