Tutorial for CD pin keeper
I brought two back sides together and started to sew them with blanket stitch. I used variegated purple cotton thread. I used a bead at every stitch. Those beads are almost the same colors with the silk ribbons. They really looked so neat and pretty. It was my first trial to make a blanket stitch with beads. I must admit that I liked this method so much...
I used a thin layer of fiber at the both CD's that I used them for the front and back sides. I cut the fibers in circular shape with the same size with CD's. I folded them precisely and sewed tightly. I guess, to glu them will be much more smart and easy idea but I scare to have a stain!!! I prefered an old method to avoid any possible problem.
I used pale lilac color ribbons to make fargo roses at the both sides. In the middle section, I added small type oyas that they gave a different look. To add leaves with different green tones was the final. At last, I added a small bow charm at the bottom, it gave another a nice sparky look.
I started to make my first CD pin keeper. First off all, I selected a solid fabric with a soft lilac color, cut two squares. I always add a muslin piece at the back side. It is pretty hard to get a good SRE result without it. I ironed both of them.
