Shades Of Pink, Shades Of Green

This morning I made my first Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe dress for 2015 with two different pink geraniums that grow in my front garden.

I decided to use two shades of pink together inspired by the two colour effect of the fabric twine I’ve started making.

A Xmas gift of The Sustainable Fashion Handbook by Sandy Black combined with a workroom tidy up spurred the start of this new project to recycle some of the smaller scraps that mount up in my studio.

I found the instructions on My Poppet. It’s easy to make and all ready my mind is sparking with ideas for what I might do with it.

You can see other ways I use my scraps in my posts Macarons, Memories & Momentoes and Treasure & Mermaids.

Always better than them ending up in landfill.
