Sewing themed book page #2

Morning friends......hope you're all well!
I have another book page to share today, the theme for this one was sewing
 & I loved every minute of making this one! I started with a square of kraft 
card covered with a paper from Craftwork Cards. The edges were distressed
with my craft knife & inked with tea dye then I added some deep cream lace.
The mannequin, also from Craftwork Cards, was given a coat of crackle paint
& inked with tea dye too. I cut the thread holders, the pin & the needle on my 
Silhouette & added some real thread. The words were hand stamped & then
 hand stitched onto the paper then lastly, I added a couple of flowers &
 some buttons. to do this morning then a quick trip into town this aft so
probably won't get any crafty time til tomorrow.....see you soon!
