~meet Madeline~

Hello everyone!


Well it has been quite the crazy
week or 2 around here!

snow
rain
sun
rain
wind
snow

it'll be a miracle if my new little garden
plants survive!!


I wanted to take just a minute
to introduce you to another little
chair slip I dreamed up....

meet Madeline...


I had fun creating Madeline....
I loved adding the teeny tiny ruffle...


I had the vision in my head for awhile and
had to hunt around etsy
to find the right graphic....


if you are interested in finding graphics
for your projects
you can find LOTS on
The graphics fairy ~ click here
she is totally amazing and literally posts
new graphics every single day of the year!!
and they are   F  R  E  E !!


but this one I actually found in another
etsy store called Vintage Restyled

she has lots of fun and unique graphics
so go check it out!

here's the back view....


just a simple little white ribbon tie....
I really like the delicate tie with the dainty ruffle....


so that's Madeline.....hope you like her~
she's available in my store if you want
to take a closer look
{ no pressure of course! ;) }

I also hope you don't mind seeing all
my new creations......

I hope to someday start doing some
decorating again & show you some more house
stuff but for now all my energy is right here

so this is what I've got!


Hope you're all doing fantastic!!




xo,


Shellagh

I love the little ruffle, it adds just the right amount of feminity. And I think the graphic is perfect. I just found that one myself and want to try it on a pillow. Thanks for your Citrasolv tip....I got my hands on some on the weekend and can't wait to try it!

Chris said...

Hi I'm going to ask a question everyone might think is dumb but I want to try one of these projects so bad. Can you walk me through the steps what do you do with the graphic and how do you get it on your fabric?
Thanks
Chris

Ticking and Toile said...

Hi Chris,
Definitely not a dumb question!! It took me quite awhile to get the technique down ~ I shared the technique in a tutorial post a few months ago. Here's the link

Feel free to email me if you have additional questions!

Lori Miller, Round barn Potting Co. said...

Oh my Goodness. I wish Miss madeline could come live at my Barn. I am always on the hunt for miss Madeline's look to soften my vignettes at the Barn.

Love when the chair back and the seat are different material and different colors.

Good Job Shellagh
