Finish, flatfold and new start

The lovely Hoppy Easter from Barbara Ana is finished.
It was a great design too make, it's only many colors, and a few stitches of a color... but it's finished.It's difficult to get the color of the fabric right on the picture. It a piece of painted fabric from Miek. It's so lovely too stitch on, and it looks beautifull

I was thinking in wat I will finish it too, I saw Mylene make a flatfold this week, so I looks up a tutorial of it, and this afternoon I made it while Noah was sleeping.
It was fun to make, and not that difficult.
Look what I made off it:

Also while I was making the flatfold, I was trying to paint a piece of fabric with tea!!! yes tea. A while back I was looking through some blogs and found this tutorial.
I meant to make a light yellow/green fabric, so I used green tea with lemon, when I make tea of it, it's light green. I put some fresh lemon with it, baked it in the oven and this is the result: But the second time I did it in to the oven I raised the temperature, I was a bit to late there are a few burn marks. Also it's not the color I wanted but I will do it with it, and try again next time with another tea...

I started tonight on another freebie from Barbara Ana 'Spring in my Garden'. This is how far I have came till now:
That was it for tonight, hope you all had a lovely sunny weekend!!!
Thanks all for visiting my blog and leaving a comment, I love too read them...
Till next time!!!

Oh wow, your flatfold is so darling! Congratulations on trying something new. I haven't tried to make a flatfold yet.

Whoops the fabric got a little scorched, didn't it? Try again, dyeing is too much fun to resist.

Perfect flatfold. I stitched that very design once for a card.

I've never tried dying fabric. I'm not messy with liquids! Have fun with the experimenting.

Je flatfold ziet er fantastisch uit! Ze zijn wel leuk hé, ik heb er nog maar eentje gemaakt en ben altijd van plan er nog een paar te maken (ook als cadeautjes), maar het is er helaas nog niet van gekomen.
Succes met verven van je stoffen, ik durf mij daar nog niet aan riskeren. zei
