Many of you where wondering what I was going to do with the antique iron.
(each photo you can enlarge by clicking on it)
Okay here we go ...
an antique iron
a pattern called L'Atelier de Zélie from C Mon Monde
(search on google and you will find many shops who have this chart)
40 count stitching fabric (I used evenwaeve Orion cream)
threads mentioned on the chart
some little pieces of fabric (for the mini quilt)
ribbon or lace
button (I used a button in the shape of a scissor)
little piece fiberfill
magnet strip (which stick on iron, many have them for show on the refrigerator)
2 little clothe pins ( My DH made them from matches)
Stitch the pattern, this is realy fun to do
Look at her hair, that are french knots. I think it looks realy cute.
Make a mini quilt, its only 2 1/2" long
Attach the quilt to the stitching part and at the bottom of your stitching piece you sew a piece of ribbon or lace.
Draw the bottom of the antique iron on cardboard and cut it out. Put the two-size tape on it. Lay on the other side the fiberfill and your stitchingpart en fold the fabric to the back and stick it on the tape. Attach the button on top and it should look like this.
Take the magnet strip and glue it on the back of the cardboard.
Put the clothe pins on the quilt, stick the pin at the bottom through the stitching fabric and then the fun part .... just hold it to the back of the iron and it will stick !
Isn't it great ?? I realy like it.
If you don't want to use a magnet strip you can always glue the cardboard on the iron, but I used a magnetstrip so maybe in the future I can change the stitching part and put a different stitching on the antique iron.
But for now I'm going to enjoy this one !!
I hope you enjoyed the story of the mystery of the antique iron :) For me it was fun to read that you all where so curious.
