Iron Craft #8! I did it!

Eleventh Hour entry to Iron Craft!

I live in a, "Pretty little valley in the center of the state where the clouds are blown from the sun.  There's a pretty little valley in the center of the state, it's _________, Washington!"  (Words from my hometown's song that was written by the elementary principal).  WINDY is the key word when it comes to our town.
So I embroidered a wind cloud and windies onto some grey stretch velour.

Warning:  Do anything with stretch velour is very difficult.  Your first impulse may be to use it because it's pretty, but make sure you're prepared for a chore.
Crossed my fingers that the invisible marker would come did, but with some water assistance.
I backed it with some pretty eyelet and added some vintage lace that I managed to get my hands on in a swap. 
Tried to model it myself.  Not easy.

Had Kaely model it...much better.
Yay, me for finally getting an Iron Craft done.

  1. What a lovely scarf in my favorite shade and that lace at the bottom really set the whole thing off! Well done. It's beautiful.

  2. Oh, it's beautiful! I LOVE the lace! It all came together wonderfully!


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. It really makes my day!

Sorry about the word verification--my blog was hijacked not too long ago, so now I have to take robo-cautions.
