All Sewed Up! - JS4 & TSG49

All Sewed Up! - Just Scraps #4 - You've Been Tagged! make a tag & There She Goes #49 - PLEATS. I was invited by Jean at JustScraps to play along with the challenges, so I created this. I hand sewed my patchwork square. I sewed my pleats but I liked the look of the pearlized pins so I left them on my project. I also used the pins for the stamins in my pleated ribbon flower. This is a pretty cool tag. It has a flap that has a magnet in it and so it opens. I placed the little handmade tags inside. The large bead and two angels is a brooch. The bead has some of the same colors found in the patches so I just tied it into my tag ribbon.

To be eligible for the There She Goes giveaway, you are to create a card that features flowers and incorporates the color yellow, then go back to the TSG to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of the challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (April 19). The winner will receive a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

Gorgeous tag Betty. And I love all the details! Showed this tag to my Mom and she loved it - she's a seamstress from way back when, still quilts and does perfect fanciwork - at 79. Needless to say, I knew she'd love this tag. Thanks for playing along at Just Scraps. Hope you come visit again. We'll be posting a new challenge on Sunday. Have a great weekend!
