Vintage Darlings ~ a tale of textile confections

My swap partner, Jodie, sent me a snippet roll filled with decadent details.
It was wrapped in the chenille piece shown.  I gasped out loud when I opened it. Yes, I did.
The spool it was wrapped on was adorned with a rose know and rhinestone.

I love the ethereal quality of the images she used.  Dreamy and darling.
Each image is also stuffed which gives it dimension like a soft little doll.

I have always been inspired by Jodie's creations.  She is not only a sweetheart but also amazing I tell you!!

A strip of silky soft tan velvet is the base for the images.  Decadent!
I loved how she stitched a garden of vintage buttons below the little girl.

I loved that she stamped some fabric pieces too.

Snips of crochet, vintage buttons and beading.

A darling little girl with her kitten.  I love, love this one.
At the bottom, she added a lovely hardware frame with Mon Amie stamped inside.
Thank you mon amie!!

I dearly love the snippet roll you made and will treasure it always!!

When I opened Beth's snippet roll I gasped again!
I have always admired Beth's stitching talents.  She is a sweetheart and amazing too!!

The fabric base she used is a swiss dot with delicate lace on top of it.
A gorgeous mother of pearl buckle adorns the top.
I love that Beth used a snip of a real vintage photo and tucked some millinery underneath it.

Next is a lovely rose button, teeny frozen charlotte, heart charm and heart locket.
It reminds me of collected items you might find in my daughter's purse when she was little.

Next, a little cutie (don't you just love that precious smile?!), "believe" on twill and a crochet bloom with a vintage button.

Another darling image pinned to the lace with a sweet flower button.

A fun engraving of a little girl graces in the inside of a scroll frame.
Then, Beth sewed a lovely trail of mother of pearl buttons.

Thank you Beth!!  I dearly love the snippet roll and treasures you sent!!

Caroline Ouzts Hay said... lovely. Did she grunge up the buttons or did they come like that? What a wonderful swap.

I had never heard of a snippet roll. Just saw some on a few blogs and they are simply precious!
