Banksia Blouse Collar & Woven Labels


My Hydrangea Diamond fabric is working out pretty nicely as a blouse, after I cut out the front and back peices, I realized I did not have enough fabric and had to make a quick trip to JoAnn luckily for me they still had some in stock.

I have sewed the front and back pieces plus attached the collar, did not do much over the past few days, but hoped to complete collar and move to the next step.


 
 

 
My woven labels from Lucky Label arrived a few days ago, it took some time to decide on a label maker, and to choose the type of label, woven versus printed. I found Lucky on Esty, they offered the woven in small quantity for a reasonable price.

I used concrete 12in x 12in stepping stone pavers and 4in x 8in pavers, I created a pattern and stack them, I did use pieces of slate to level the barrel. I kept the stand low so I did not need to make it permanent, I like that I can move it anytime I wish.


I dd not have enough pavers on …
