more seam treatments
















Here are 5 more seam treatments and some of my favorites.
The top is a lovely little doily that I had. sooo I made a ribbon rose in the center and knots to be buds around the edges... I love this and will be making more for sure.
The next one is an angel motif that I had. Well I added some beads to her skirt and to her sleeves. Then of course I had to make more of her wings soo gold and clear beads when there.
The Flower treatment is a piece of flower lace that I got . I dyed it with Koolaid . I was thinking of beads in each center but then I didn't like it soo I went with Knots instead. Now I love it.
The other pink lace is a lace that I also dyed with koolaid. I then crochet a simple chain and sewed this on with beads across the lace.
The last one is what I did with buttons and some eyelash yarn I had.
ooooh this was fun... ok now I am off to see what I can do next.

My gypsy bag


Well It is done. And doesn't look bad if I say so my self!,.. There is a black cord for the handle. And I didn't want to get tooo crazy cause of the oriental theme. The top picture is the front and the bottom is the back.

more seam treatments




ok the top one is the one is ribbon with bullion roses.., that took me a while to do... those roses are not easy for me but with practice....
The middle one is the ribbon weave with beads in the center
the bottom one is one that I use a lot. I really like it... All it is lace sewn on with beads across the top.... simple, quick and to me perfect...

one of my own

Well after the grape one I want a simple easy one and I had this little seam to do. Well this one is one of my own making. I couched a thread down in soft u shapes across the seam. Then I took yarn and weaved in and out of the thread. I followed with the beads and as a final touch the buttons. Then it needed one more thing so I put 2 beads on the buttons.

looks like grapes


Wow.. this one takes the time..
Not hard at all but it takes time to do all them french knots. I am trying to figure out how to take better pictures but not yet. My scanner doesn't work . I have a great little camera but if I get too close it blurres sooo will keep trying.
I attached lace with buttonhole stitch.. made stems with straight stitch. Made leaves with lazy daisy. and then started o nthe knots. Took me a full day around being a mom and the other life stuff to make them...
and You got it... They look like grape clusters to me.
