Photo frames

The challenge on Bubblyfunks Vanilla Sugar site this month is 'frames'.
I have made 2 for this challenge. The first has been made with one of my favourite fabrics which I sewed around the edges using my sewing machine (not as even as I wanted but most of the edges turned out ok). I then used some of my vast collection of laces to make some lace flowers, found some vintage buttons for the middles of the flowers and attatched these along with some swirls cut from vintage silk.

The second frame has been made using a technique I've just discovered and absolutely love doing! I needle felted the frame using some wool felt from Hobbycraft. I think I'll add a magnet to this mini frame so it can be displayed on the fridge.

My new folksy shop

Have a look and let me know what you think-just click on the Folksy sign on the top right

Here's what's in the shop now:

and these are the ones I've just added today:
