I'd like to Introduce Myself

Hi everyone! I'm Sherry and was invited to join this blog by the sweet Cathy. I like to sew and crochet and other crafts too. I usually have several projects going at the same time....Attention Deficit Disorder? or just to many creative ideas running through my head at once??? I'm not sure, but that's me.

I thought I'd share some photo's of a couple of things that I just finished for a swap. I made these simple little dresses out of paper and machine stitched them to a brown paper bag after I embellished them. I love sewing on paper, although it is not forgiving at all if you make a mistake.

I also made these paper envelopes that can be used for a gift card or little necklace or something. I stitched the top paper to a brown paper bag and then stitched on some paper buttons. The buttons are brown paper bags that I crinkled and then dipped in decoupage glue a couple of times to make them kinda thick and rubbery.

Anyway, I've enjoyed looking at everyone's projects the last couple of days and am so glad that Cathy invited me to join all of you here on Pins and Needles.

Love those little dresses. But I too suffer the crafters version of ADD - all my ancestors faults they all wanted me to learn their craft! My story and I'm happy with it.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sherry...how lovely your little dresses are! I never would have thought to sew on paper, but then I don't sew...how unique and beautiful! You do nice work.

It's been nice meeting you,

Doris :-)
