    my version of bradford exchange done in fabric.

    I purchased this new pattern set and came up with this idea to make it as a plate, to hang in my kitchen. I love bradford exchange plates but can't afford to buy anymore. So I created this one. It's my total idea, and learn't how to do binding at same time. Now i know how to do binding, I can also finish all my other wallhangings. I'm so excited how this turned out, i had to share photo. The bluejay and berries pattern i got at www.pixiesrule.com Hope you like my idea. The second picture is the fabric choice i picked for this project.

    Thank you everyone for your compliments. It was a bit challenging at first, i thought to myself, why do i always want to make things that drive me crazy LOL. But once I got the template traced out on card board, ( I used cereal box to make donut shape) then i made another one on tissue paper. Ok this is going to work out. I was very careful at trying my best to keep it all lined up as how i wanted it to be. Then once i traced it on the tissue paper, i lightly sprayed it with spray adhesive to be able to sew the lines straight and as accurate apart on blue fabric. Oh before i forget i also stitched the blue fabric on tear away first, with 1/4 " under, on both inner and outer circle parts. Then i placed the tissue paper over that and stitched out the lines. Then i stitched it onto the white embroidered part, and added my decorated stitches. I was creating as i went along, i kept changing my mind, lol. Had lots of fun, I'm real happy you's all like my idea. Thanks again for looking.

    I really like your idea. It's hard to come up with new ways for our creations to be shown.
