Someplace In Thyme2, I have been showing you some of the sweet things I have made using the french tissue paper I have found. I promised you a tutorial and so here it is. I hope you enjoy yourselves and find the time to create some fun things too.
As you can see from the hard cardboard heart above, this is the start. You can readily find this type of unfinished shape in just about any craft store. I love hearts and so this is what I will be showing you today.
Using a sponge brush and some Modge Podge, brush some Modge Podge on the heart and place the tissue paper down. The above heart is the back. Just make sure to cover all the cardboard and the sides.
After everything has dried, use the Modge Podge to cover the whole outside of your work, let dry and decorate.
I will be making two more and selling them in sets of three, in my Etsy shop.
These would make adorable holiday ornaments and decorations for gift giving too. How sweet would they be covered in vintage sheet music paper or language paper?? I hope you try this and let me know what you think.
A little Bit About Me
Someplace in Thyme
I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

This is short and oh so sweet this week. I would like to announce the winner of my Pink Give A Way.
Drum roll please........
Grace from Pink In The City......Yeah Grace. Please contact me with your info and I will get this loveliness in the mail right away.
Thank you to everyone that participated. It's so hard to have one winner when you would love to have everyone be a winner. For this very reason, I will be having another give a way in July.
Thanks Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for once again letting us celebrate "Pink". Please visit Beverly's blog to find the list of this weeks pinkies and to join in the fun.

I have a great pattern for the tops and the bottoms, but found that following the measurements the pattern gave me for fabric was off.
Now, I will admit, it could (and probably was) me that was off, although I have been sewing since I was in high school and I am not telling how many decades that was. The point is, I know how to read a pattern.
After laying out the fabric and the pattern, I was short fabric. This is something that I don't find any fun. I have a choice of going back for more fabric, or trying to improvise using something that might match.
After this, I just began to buy several yards of what I wanted and no longer paid any attention to the suggested yardage......hence, WAAAAAY TO MUCH OF A GOOD THING.
Not wanting to waste all this sweet, cute, precious and adorable flannel, we are talking about flannel here, I decided to pull out the patterns and see what I could come up with.
Long pj's, short pj's, (it is summer, after all) and in between pj's. Don't laugh, haven't you ever seen capri Jammie's before? : )
Oh Jenna, you lucky girl!!
Now, it doesn't stop there my fellow bloggers, oh no, not yet.
I also made 8 pair for my grand sons, Jack and Kyler. I can't show you those because they are already wearing them, BUT, I can show you what I made with the little extra I had after the Jammie's.
Just goes to show you, waste not, want not, but beware, you create a lot more work for yourself in the end, but it is satisfying and I love to see the little ones wearing something grandma made with love.
