Karla’s having another tag book swap. This one is based on the Wizard of Oz. I searched and searched and could not find images that inspired me to make the tags. I made a trip to my local quilt store for some thread and asked if they had any Wizard of Oz fabrics. They did have several and I bought a sampling of each. I then decided to make fabric tags.
So I got out my trusty Timtek to make them stiff, my wonder under for bonding, my beads, scissors, flowers, buttons, vintage lace and variegated thread. I also used my printer to print out the text. I also used my Crop-o-dile to make the holes and add the eyelets for the hole.
I love how they came out. This time I remembered to make one for myself to add to my book when I receive it from Karla. I also made an extra for Karla. I had to make 6 total, so I made one of each character, Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman, and the Cowardly Lion, and then made 4 of Dorothy sleeping in the poppies.
The back is finished with Surrender Dorothy fabric, and either Dorothy in the red shoes or the witch with the house on top of her. I also added the swap button, and my information. I will share the back on Flickr tomorrow.
I really love how they came out and hope that my swap recipients do, too.
