Stitches? and Stitching!!!

It's MONDAY!!!
I'm very late posting so much going on at home, it's really came to a head with a weekend spent in the hospital as Dillon suffered a head injury that needed surgery, there must be over seventeen stitches along his hairline... bless him, he's fit and recovering extremely well from it all!

which brings me onto the new challenge at...

and this week is Stitching!!! I know!!!

I completely indulged in my love of sewing for this challenge, creating a very aged looking bunny from a Tilda pattern.
 
To start, the bunny's muslin fabric was stained with antique linen and vintage photo distress stains. I definitely needed my scrubbie after that!
The ear lining and outfit are stamped with Wendy Vecchi's fabulous ticking and check background stamps, using distress ink directly onto the fabric. So pleased with how it came out!
The front I simply stamped this wonderful flower and finished off with some poppers.
So check out the goodies at...
Photobucket
And then why not pop round to the rest of the team's stunning stitched projects!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a beautifully creative day,
give your loved ones BiG HuGs!!!
