Sew Artsy Reveal Day! YEA!

It's finally here!

Take a look at the kit contents!
Vintage zippers, pattern with the original tissue paper,
buttons and fabric.  Papers by JilliBean Soup, 
Teresa Collins, Christy Tomlinson for Pink Paislee,
and Sew much more!
Plus Hattie Hoop, a 10" wood embroidery hoop.  
No need to use it for embroidery, just check out the
creative ways our DT used theirs by visiting 
The Gallery will have all of the Hattie Hoop
SeW ArTsY Projects.
(by the way, there are so many projects for Sew Artsy
that it is taking longer to load the gallery pictures into the 
gallery than expected. So be sure to see more gallery
projects tomorrow. But there are some fabulous 
ones posted already.)

 Here's my Hattie Hoop...
This is a verse from one of my favorite songs.
I sang this song many times when the kids were
little. Slightly off key I'm sure.

The background is painted canvas, the 
heart is cut from batting, and all of the
letters are from either the sticker sheet
or papers included in the kit. The little
"grey" cloud is fabric, and the big
wood button is stained with Barn Door
Distress Stain.  The little sun peeking
out from the cloud was made by my 
daughter. She's a crafty gal too. It was the
perfect touch to Hattie, don't you think?

Speaking of my talented girl, here she is with 
her friend. Last August, at the start of school,
her friend wanted some assistance 
painting her senior parking space and recruit 
Kimberly to sketch out a portrait for the space.

 Of course there are pictures of the girls
on that seriously hot day. I believe the temperature 
made it to the 100 mark. Heat or not they were determined to 
finish. Working on asphalt, and watching paint bubble
as they spread it around,  it took most of the
day and it turned out amazing.
(See the little photo at the bottom of LO.)

And because my girl loves to play
with Photoshop we have a black and white
of the girls.  

Then it's my turn to create,

  A few scraps, the pattern instructions,
and my sewing machine to create a
patchwork background.
