I adore this photo - it is my lovely Nan, Elsie, taken when she was a little girl. She is now 92 years young!!
I decided to use it as the starting place for her Christmas present this year. I asked my daughter (sorry, but I still haven't mastered everything on this computer!) to change the background colour to the photo, as it was very dark. I then printed it onto special T-shirt printing paper. The image can then be ironed onto a piece of cotton fabric, which reverses the image. I once forgot this and printed some writing, which of course read backwards! Doh!
Using vintage fabrics, I created a patchwork boarder to it and made a cushion with lace edging.
I also made a little matching bag to hide some special surprises inside for her.
Happy Christmas Nan!! Here's to many more....
