All that glitters ain't gold

I'm experimenting with Dylon fabric paints. Here's a before and after of some Aïda embroidery fabrics I've died in pink.

I'm quite happy with the result.

And I'm making a cute handbag with it. Here's a scan I've made sofar. (the scan is poorly done, it looks so much better in real life)

I'm gonna cross-stitch some Squeezy's on it and embelish it with my new gliterari..

It's all crooked and not right on this scan. But trust me, it does look very pleasing.

Here's a little scetch of how the handbag will look like..

Oh-la-la, c'est chique et pratique!

Another miniature cross-stitch of a tree. (the Squeezy is hiding behind it)

I've got these amazingly cool glitterari in 8 different colors. This is a scan of the brown ones. (I've got purple, pink, yellow, blue, lilac, grey and black..)

glitter galore

And this chair is to die for.. It's a piece from the MET museum in NYC..

The front is covered with Irish stitch needlework and the back with a needlework landscape scene.
