INCHY 'M' - Measurement
I made this Inchy for the InchybyInch challenge after a little gentle encouragement from Jo - thank you Jo! Straight away my mind went to dressmaking and I pulled out all the related stamps I own ... tricky working so small and chose the simplest. Started off stamping on actual dressmaking paper patterns but, couldn't get a result I was content with and so moved on to stamp onto part of an old hessian blind that I have preserved - a whole 4 foot of it - just to use an inch! You can only imagine what a junkyard my playroom is ... but, I always knew I'd NEED it at some point. Only took me 5 years. Ho hum. This stamp of a measuring tape is one of my absolute favourites. I embellished the stamped piece with a dressmaking pin and the tiniest button I could find in my now burgeoning collection. Very simple but I enjoyed making it.
