Loving the vintage vibe!

Here's where I'll share my obsession with vintage fabric! It's taking over my house!

I'll sharing with you my favorite fabrics, my 'adventures" in dressmaking using vintage patterns, some home furnishing ideas and no doubt I'll be telling you about any exciting finds! Love to hear about your vintage adventures too!

My first Shop was AudreysCat ( online shop May 2010) , but my new logo / name - WittyDawn , arrived Jan 2014.

I hope you'll have time to browse my shops too !

Next Crafty Folk Blog Giveaway ~ Round Robin (an Etsy Team collaboration)

Next Crafty Folk Blog Giveaway ~ Round Robin

I'm a member of the super Crafty Folk Team on Etsy, and I signed up to be part of the team round robin giveaway. The idea being to create a collaborative piece of work, passed from person to person, each making add addition in whatever medium they wish. Our starting point was this super piece of A4 sized artwork:

1. The original poster was created by the talented Dawn of Lilys Night Garden (also Team Leader of Crafty Folk).

2. Handmade in Keswick, painted the beautiful gold locks, which also have stunning highlights of bronze and red.

3. The poster was then sent to Hannah of Squintessential who added pretty colours and sparkles to her gown and glamourous eyelashes!

4. Next Frou Frou Felt, who created a beautiful felted pink flower brooch to adorned her hair before sending her on her way to her next 'beauty consultant' !

5. The talented Jen of Miss Bohemia was the next to apply her creativity creating the fabulous lilac butterfly/text background artwork.

6. My own addition has been the little brooch made of vintage fabric which seemed to me to be the perfect match to the colours and styles of the previous contributers - next contributers please position this as you wish to fit in with later additions :) .

Our lady will be setting off for her next journey shortly. Further updates on the progress of this poster for the giveaway will be posted on the Team Crafty Folk blog here. http://crafty-folk.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/craftyfolk-round-robin.html
