Here's the snippet roll I sent to Cerri; she's a new friend and her site is The Little Pink Studio.
I packed it in a little tart tin (or Jello mold) -- it fit perfectly!
This time I played with some black accents, and I really like the way it came out.
This is the back, and you can see how I decorated the spool with French paper.
Another view of it all rolled up; now, I'll show you each section:
The top; I really love this little girl with the curly hair and the big sash and I've used her in several projects in the past
A photo of a baby girl, and then some of my favorite beaded wedding gown trim...and a tiny frozen Charlotte
Millinery petals in white, and buttons
A little boy and his baby sibling, some antique brown lace and a wonderfully textured old metal button
Another view of that favorite mother and child from my previous post, a Bingo number and a pink crocheted flower
Another sweet photo of a girl, more millinery (I used the good stuff!) and of course, buttons!
You might have noticed that I put many of the photos I used on the snippet roll under a layer of sheer fabric; they show up so much better in person than they do in these photos.
The fabric with the green and orange is a snippet of a feed sack fabric quilt
Another sweet baby photo and some beautiful crochet lace and buttons
Finally...I created a charm from a tiny frame and another vintage darling photo and tied it on, along with a fabulous "birdcage" button that I just love!
I think what I love most about these snippet rolls is the tiny scale, and the chance to do so much hand sewn detail. It's a challenge to get it all sewn on so that it remains compact enough for the spool.
Thanks for looking!
