Play Day At Pam's

Today Pam ( & I had a work day at her studio.  This is Pushka in one of Pam's many suitcases.    I managed to cut a lot of chenille for ebay and sew up a journal cover while Pam sewed & stuffed her little chenille bear that she's creating. 
 Pam's DH supplied us with freshly brewed coffee as well as giving my neck a massage.  What more could you want on a craft morning!

Nostalgic Vintage Lace Heart

Welcome to my new blog "Bears & Old Lace".  Just thought I would have a change from the Beary-Vintage name I've had for so long!

I've just listed this Vintage Style heart on Made-It (under my old name).  I've made a calico heart and embellished it with old laces, a crocheted flower, a vintage hatpin, diamonte bling and a gorgeous old envelope addressed to a Miss B. Carmichael from a Charles Marshall who was in the airforce.  I can't see the date but I'm guessing it was around the war time.  I had such a lot of fun making it, actually I've made three now.   Thanks Pam for the inspiration from another blog called Everything Vintage.

I love using my collection of old laces

Li'l Friends

After so long away (only because of technical probs) I thought I better show you some of my latest creations.  Ever so sweet is this little wabbit made of mohair.  I still have to finish her nose and grubby up her a bit.  Then there's this sweet little bear made from vintage velveteen fabric.  I made her dress from a vintage tablecloth dyed in parisian for a vintage look.
