Name tag revealed

Now that it has arrived at its destination, I thought I'd share the pics with you of the name tag I made for Julie for the upcoming Sew It Together sewing weekend.

Julie makes dresses under licence from Izzy and Ivy - and this is a miniature of the Ava design.

I spent some time checking on her blog to see what the dresses looked like and then set to cutting out tiny pieces of fabric to get it made.

Having time on my hands (while I have been off my feet!) meant I had lots of time to fiddle with the small pieces such as the shoulder frills and the like.


And I have to say that my tiny iron was a huge help in pressing the small dress parts together.

Julie has blogged it and is very happy with her little badge so that makes me happy and glad I had the time to make her something special.

Not long to go now til the big weekend.
