So beautiful ~



First....you guys know how much I love seam binding, right?
Well, Kathy asked me my very fave neutral colors so I thought I'd share them here....

Here they are:
Leather Tan
Oatmeal
Eggshell
Bark Tan
Cream

The most wonderful thing too is that you can dye it...tint it with coffee...
and crunch it with just a bit of water to age it...
I've even used a make up sponge with just a touch of brown ink (almost dry)
rubbed gently over the crunched binding to age it very slightly.

The beautiful of my post is this sweet girl ~
Her mama took these photos and I had to share...
just look at those baby blues!






Have a wonderful Tuesday sweet friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

OH she is truly adorable, dearest Dawn. Such a sweet little face, and her mother caught her in some wonderful seconds.

Lovely colors and the face of an angel.

She is an adorable and precious little girl!

Thank you, Dawn! These are the colors I will start off with then. I know you get quite a bit so I want to make sure they will get used and often! : )

Sweet as can be...and you get to snatch her up and give her hugs and kisses. I am finding that my darlings don't enjoy hugs and kisses even a little. I must be wise and judicious. Not fun at all!

Vee said...

Oh thanks for the tip on how to further distress Hug Snug. I am going to try it!

Dawn- I want to say thank you for staying grounded. You know I visit "you" everyday and you have basically stayed the same- inspiring and homey. Some bloggers change too much when they are "famous" and instead of inspiring it becomes intimidating. Thank you-- Joy

Thanks for the link Dawn, I too am a big fan of seam binding being utilized in craft projects and have a French style quilt I was planning for this summer that uses seam binding for embellishment! This will be perfect...

Hi Dawn, Clara, what a blessing to have that sweet child in your life! I dye my snug hug with walnut ink in a mister. First I mist with water then gather in a ball with my hands, use the walnut ink to achieve the destressed look you want. Let it dry while still all rumpled up for that cool vintage look. It can also be done with watered acrylic paint in any color. Try a metallic on black. The mister lets you control the depth of color!

Hi Dawn,
I finally am able to pop in for a bit! LOVE that seam binding and Jeff is the best to work with. I could have a whole room full of nothing but binding. lol I unrolled a bunch yesterday , soaked it with water, scrunched it up in a ball and put rubber bands around it. It is sitting on my register. I really ought to check it because it is probably dry already. LOVE IT!!

Clara is a little cutie pie too!
Blessings~

I lurk here a lot and don't comment much. I love your blog and enjoy your posts. Today I had to tell you your darling clara is looking like her grandmother in the most beautiufl way. That would be YOU in case you didn't see it just yet :).Thanks for all your wonderful tips.

Precious girl. Thanks for sharing.

Dawn,
Not sure which picture gives me more goosebumps, Clara in her sweet jacket or that box of lovely seam binding. Kidding, Clara wins of course.

Clara is a doll - look at those eyelashes!!
I have purchased several rolls of the seam binding (thank you for the source!) and I soak it in walnut crystal dye and then roll in a ball in my hand and lay it on at towel to dry (still rolled up in the ball). When it's dry it has fabulous "crinkles" in it. I have a large jar with the rolled up "balls" in it on my work table so it's ready to use but it also very nice to look at.
Love your blog!

Dawn for some reason your blog and "essence" is pulling at me, haunting me in the sweetest way, and I'm in love with all your posts, can't stop looking and I need to get busy here. About your Clara, what a timeless picture, if you made it black and white or sepia toned, it would look like those famous vintage french beauties people are so fond of collecting now...You could frame it in something you of course! made :D:D
many blessings, and thank you from my heart for your sweet energy. Lady
