A birthday card I made for a friend who’s into wrestling and Prince, and who loves Scotland (who can blame him, really? I’m pretty keen on the place myself ;) ).
The lesson I learned making this card was that when you misplace the blue felt you bought for making a Saltire, don’t think you can get away with using an old Lycra-ised crushed velvet petrol-blue vest top as a substitute, even if you think it ties in better with the Prince strand of the card. Kinda difficult to sew to the felt, and it reeaally didn’t want to play ball and adhere to the card properly with the adhesive I had - crept away from the edges something shocking no matter what I did :(
If I were to repeat this one (which isn’t my style), I’d either stick with felt, or add in a ribbon border or summat to try and make the velvet behave.
I am still yet to come re-find the blue felt…
