Creative Cruise

Standard

20170706_111744IMG_1139When we were on our recent cruise around Scotland, one of the projects that we made was a clock.  We used vintage textiles including tray cloths and doilies. The results were amazingly good and everyone who made one was delighted with the results.

As always there were lessons to be learnt.

1) The wooden embroidery hoops, used as a frame, take up a LOT of space in a suitcase!

2) Do not squash your finished clock into a suitcase as this stops the hands turning!

3) Use vintage doilies for the clock face not tray cloths. This way you don’t need to cut the fabric to fit and you get a better result.IMG_1192IMG_1120
