Detail of grey velvet treasure box. Grey velvet trousers and sweet papers under a layer of organza, stitched and trimmed to recover a choclate box. Red beads, red rose trim and a gold roseshaped bead were used to decorate the scrap of fabric which covers this box.
stitched by Diane Powell for my birthday card a very long time ago.
I couldn't bear to throw it out and reused it to cover this treasure box..

VASE covered with machine embroidered silkpaper.
Gold organza layered over gold satin (scraps from UWIC smoking project)was used to make this fabric bowl.
Machine satin stitch over choclate wrappers created the design on each panel. Matching blue and orange beads (from my grandfather's tray stash), complete the bowl.
Must make more, now I know how!!
