Moo mania

I had a lot of fun with this new MOO challenge - sewing being the latest theme

I had the good fortune to find the Tim Holtz weathered textiles stamps in TKMAXX  last week and it only seemed right to use them to create the base for this collection of MOOs - stamped in archival & coloured with Milled Lavender.

Here are the front & back

A small left over + ribbon & a button
2 eyelets coloured with Promarker to blend as they were pale pink!

Pages 1&2

The sewing machine is from a set of free stamps (Cardmaking & Papercraft)
The strip of buttons is part of a Paper Artsy set (buttons plate 2) I've added a little colour with Promarkers, added a Nitwits paper button & 2 button brads.

Pages 3&4
The needle & thread is from the same free set, learn to sew is PA buttons plate 4 & the stitches comes from another set of free stamps :-) - the fringing is a Prima stamp I got on a visit to the USA.

Pages 5&6

The hook & eye and the rolled tape measure are also from a free set of stamps.
The scissors is part of the Cardmaking & Papercraft set ant the thimble & Pins and needles are from Paper Artsy Buttons 4.

Pages 7&8
Lace piece & lady in a lace coiffe are PA Buttons 2 & the word lace from plate 4,
Hand stitched is another free stamp as is the patchwork square (craft stamper) 

Hope you've managed to stick with me to the end - here is the opened out booklet
