Fabscraps Oh Sew Beautiful!

Oh Sew Beautiful is another gorgeous line just released by Fabscraps!  Like all of their lines, it includes some really awesome chipboard pieces.  Don't you just love this hanger?  The hanger, title, large scissors and manequins are all apart of the chipboard pieces in this collection.

I used embossing powders to alter my chipboard pieces.

The collection also includes diecut paper to cover the chipboard mannequin on the right.  The other mannequin is heat embossed.

Instructions for this project and what you will need:

  • Fabscraps chipboard:   DC68 001 Coat Hanger and plaque with scissors and bobbins; DC68 006 Pins & Needles, DC68 008 Scissors & Mannequin, DC68 013 small mannequin.
  • Fabscraps Journal Box MC68 001A - small dress form and 2 tags
  • Fabscraps paper C68 001 Stitch in Time
  • Mask and modeling paste
  • Mist
  • Die cut oval frame
  • Flowers, ribbon, lace, embellishments 

  1. Use a mask and modeling paste to do some masking on the Coat Hanger DC68 001.   After it dries, spray with a mist (such as Lindy's Cosmopolitan Pink) to give it a bit of colors and sparkle.  Ink the edges.
  2. Cover the scissors from Fabscraps chipboard DC68 008 with gold embossing enamel.  (I used Stampendous Aged Gold.) 
  3. Cover the dress form from Fabscraps chipboard DC68 008 with of white embossing enamel (I used Ranger Antiquities weathered white.) 
  4. Use silver embossing enamel to cover the bobbins from DC68 001. (I used Stampendous aged silver.) You could instead, paint these pieces.
  5. Treat the title chipboard DC 68 006 Pins and Needles either with embossing enamel or paint.
  6. Adhere one of the dress form die cuts from Fabscraps Journal Box MC68 001A to the smaller Fabscraps chipboard dress form DC68 013.  Ink the edges.
  7. Cover the Fabscraps plaque DC68 001 with C68 001 Stitch in Time paper.  Ink the edges.
  8. Glue a piece of lace to the bottom of the plaque.
  9. Fussy cut 2 of the smaller  and 1 large thread cards from Fabscraps Journal Box MC68 001A.  Wrap a thin piece of cord or heavy thread around the larger card.  Ink the edges of all three tags.
  10. Mount an oval frame on the right side of the plaque and adhere the two dress forms to the frame.
  11. Layer the scissors, bobbin, thread card, and title on the left side.
  12. Embellish with flowers and ribbon as shown. 
  13. Use the provided rings to attach the plaque to the hanger.
