Make do and mend with Oh Sew Kitty
I have amassed a number of decorative items over the years, some with sentimental value and evoking lovely feelings of nostalgia. One such item, was a 1960s wedding head-dress given to me by a family member who very kindly gave me free rein to do whatever I wanted with it. The condition of the veil was surprisingly good and I must admit I fretted over cutting into the embroidered netting. I am glad I did though as the final piece was definitely worth it. The silk rose-bud tiara was separated from the head-dress and bent into a heart-shaped and then I cut the netting into strips and tied it on using the same principle as a rag-wreath. I then box-framed it which aside from giving the beautiful wedding memory secure storage, it really finished it off nicely.
