This is a bag I made from sewing braid together as an experiment, it took a long time to sew. And was quite hard to do.













this one is scrap material I had with ric rac braid and trims sewn on top
















This is s a ribbon pillow, some of my friends have some of these















and this is a slashed pillow of bright frogs I made as a trial to see if i could do it, and I did. It has 4 layers of fabric and slash the 3 top layers. I had fun doing this one.















this is a cross stitch I did years ago, and I made the outside with fabric, paper and braid all sewn together. The cross stitch took quite a long time to do, and sat around for years before I framed it. The cross stitch part is actually raised with wadding in behind.
