MEMORY BOARD PART I


I AM LOVING THIS MEMORY BOARD. I HAD SO MANY IDEAS FOR THIS FRAME, CHALK SIGN, OR CHICKEN WIRE.....
BUT I DECIDED TO USE SOME OF MY VINTAGE LACE AND CROCHET COLLECTION...I PURCHASED PRESS BOARD FROM HOME DEPOT AND QUILT BATTING FROM JO-ANN FABRIC STORE. I LAYERED PAINTER CLOTH, A LACE TABLE CLOTH AND A CROCHET TABLE CLOTH FOR THE TOP LAYER. I FOLDED A DOILY IN HALF TO MAKE A POCKET AND STITCHED IT  IN THE BOTTOM CENTER OF THE LAYERED FABRIC. 
TOMORROW I WILL ADD SOME SMALL DETAILS AND I WILL SHARE THE FINISHED MEMORY BOARD WITH YOU!

CIAO FOR NOW AND HAPPY SUNDAY!
