Grand Entrance Instructions

Instructions to make Grand Entrance Jewellery

 

instgrandentrance

 

I used these old earrings that I purchased in South America on one of the necklaces.

For the backing of each piece of jewellery I use a thick heavy weight tear a way, medium weight wadding

 

instgrandentrance

 

Cut away the tear a way and wadding from the border

Trace on grease proof paper the outer border to make a template

Cut the grease proof paper for your template

I used a very thick water resistant cardboard for the backing board (I only used this as I had some on hand) but you can use ice cream plastic buckets as it is easy to cut and it is a good excuse to buy your favourite ice cream.

Cut the backing board using the template

Hot glue down the fabric to the backing board or ice cream plastic

 

instgrandentrance1

 

From your template cut felt to cover the back plate

 

instgrandentrance

 

Hot glue the felt onto the fabric, this gives your work a nice clean finish

Press with your iron on very hot (No steam) over the felt this makes the hot glue spread so the glue is not lumpy

 How to use and what to do with the decorative stitches on your sewing machine

These decorative stitches are in most of your sewing machines, I find many people do not use these beautiful stitches to their full advantage, what I like to do is overlap decorative stitches with different coloured thread, as you can see in the photos. Have fun and experiment!
