Homespun at Less is More

Another favourite challenge that my travels have kept me from joining in with recently is Less is More - this week the theme  is Homespun and I'm delighted to be back and joining in again!

I cut a scrap of gingham paper with pinking shears and used a brown marker to make faux tacking stitches,  then added the die cut dressmaker's dummy (it's actually brown, not black as it appears on the photo - and I'm afraid I don't know which die was used as I received it in a swap)  and finished the card with some buttons and a charm of dressmakers' scissors, tied to a mini-hank of twine.


  1. I thought this was a piece of binca that you'd stitched with embroidery thread! Very clever to use gingham paper! Great design, Jane. xx

  2. Jane what a super take on our theme, the restricted colour palette works really well.
    Thank you for joining our last challenge of the year and wishing you a very happy new year.

    Thanks for sharing with us.

    Homespun and CAS-tastic! Thanks so much for playing along and a Happy New Year to you.
