Looks can be very I just enjoyed doing these 5 SEW much...the Images are from Lisa'e Altered Art. Chriss x

Would you just take a look at these from Chris she not only did her sewing but she handmade the felt background....
She also transferred LAA images onto white cotton fabric...and wait for it... the only cotton fabric I had were some white pillow cases...yes, you have guessed it I let her use one of them... Now that's friends for you... but I think I was the lucky one as she showed me step by step how to achieve the transfers.
Thanx Chris x
