creative crew challenge-domestic goddess

another challenge this month from the creative crew is based 
on the domestic goddess range from stampin up 

because of pre-order restrictions here in oz and stamp set availability i have had to think a bit out of the square to bring you my challenge this month! 

now anyone who knows me knows i am NOT a sewer
i am the.WORST. sewer in the world
-just ask my poor poor form 2 textiles teacher from havelock north intermediate
but i do own a sewing machine and do know what material looks like so thought i would give it a go
 so for the challenge i made a birthday gift for a very special domestic goddess i know
i used the new flirtacious material from stampin up to pretty up some 
plain tea towels and a boring old $2 shop apron
i decorated some jars and made a notice board from an old cupboard door 
 the cupboard door (thank you ikea seconds area!) 
has got some speciality delicate doilies paper added to it-i have had to sponge the paper black
and have added some stamped images to the back with staz-on....
this is so you can write on the glass with white board marker.
down the bottom i have used the simple letters die cuts to write one of my favourite sayings
 with the budget ikea tea towels i have just added a strip of material to them to make them prettier
 the ikea spice jars got decorated with some delicate doilies dsp and some blossom party flower die cuts
i added some ribbon and rhinestone brads.
 my apron was a $2 shop bargain and i have added material to it.
i also added some cut out letters that i have badly sewn on to the apron (on purpose!!)
and tied extra fabric to the edges.
 i also made a matching coat hanger for the tea towels to rest on or the apron.
i used the delicate doilies dsp and blossom party die cuts with rhinestone brads and ribbon


hope the birthday girl likes her present

cheers ears
