Today I am showing a couple of ideas of what you can do with product from Expo International!
This is what was sent to me...don't you just love the roses and colorful tassels?
(At the end of this post you will find details on how you can win yummy swag like this to play with.)
I used the tassel fringe to complete a boho gypsy tote that I've been working on for a while.
I never finished it because it always seemed to missing 'something'....
So I sewed the tassel fringe all around the bottom of the tote. Perfect!
I love how the tassels move when I walk. Happy happy colors!
For the headband, I deconstructed the rose applique and stitched it onto a old stretchy headband.
I used a sewing machine to add some elastic trim.
I saved the remaining rose leaves to cover up exposed areas of the headband base.
Now I have a beautiful headband that I love wearing!
Those roses are just too beautiful, don't you agree? Look at the embroidered detail!
Thanks for coming by!
