I have always loved to sew garments, home dec, and craft items. These silk and velvet wall hangings are fun to create. I love all things vintage and the silk and velvet trimmed with tea-dyed doilies, fit the bill. I also like to use satins and fine linens. Embellishments are wee dried flower clusters with mini silk roses. On some I have used pieces of jewelry. The ideas for these are endless and they make wonderful gifts. I hope you enjoy them.
