Scrap Happy- July 2021

It’s just over six months that I joined in with Anne Brooke’s 52 tag challenge. Every Friday Anne posts a You Tube video with a new tag to embroider- see #52hannemadetags. You create a tag and on the back write something- maybe something that happened that week, or someone you wish to remember, whatever you like. I think since I am sharing my progress this month I may well dedicate this week’s tag to all the bloggers who keep me going with your wonderful posts.

There they are the first 27 tags, all made from scraps of fabric, lace, buttons from the button tin, etc.

I bought the tags and the ring binder- serious doubts that I will fit 52 onto one ring. Here are some of my favourites.

Faux chenille- fabric leftover from the stitchbook I made last year- love the tactile nature of this one.
Buttons galore- dedicated to my love of sewing and embroidery.
This tag was all about stitch- bullion and french knots.
A pocket with a treasure- in my case a badge I think belonged to a son- the smiley face made me think of how much I wanted to go strawberry picking, which I missed out on last year.
Two of my very favourites- couching and teeny tiny hexies, very fiddly the pair of them but most enjoyable.
The most recent ones- weaving and the medal to award ourselves with reaching number 26.

Slow stitching is the most wonderful way of practising mindfullness I know. The UK has made great strides with vaccines etc but we’re not out of the woods yet, and anyway life always throws a googly when you aren’t expecting one. It has.

I post my tags on my other blog, should you wish to see them all- https://avoicethroughstitch.wordpress.com/

  1. What a wonderful idea. You have done a great job with all of your tags. I love all of the different fabrics and embellishments you have used.

  2. I also am following #52handmadetags and I enjoy seeing how different we all do our tags! It´s a great project. Love seeing your tags!

  3. What a great creative project! You have some interesting tags there – please keep us up to date on your progress 🙂

  4. So many pretty ones…they must each have a story which is what makes them special. What an interesting project!

  5. Either a new tag ring – or gorgeous piece of ribbon to accentuate the bundle will do the trick

  6. what a great idea and something to look forward and plan each week. Love the pocket and the tiny hexies.

  7. I am always partial to the embroidery, so my favorite has to be the boullion and french knots. What a fun project.

  8. I think you’re definitely going to need another ring!
    I love the little french knots and the hexies.

    yup looks like you’ll need another tag ring for the second half of the year!

  11. What a beautiful idea, and what a lot of work goes into each tag.
    I’m sorry to hear that you got a curved ball – I hope it can be sorted very soon. xx

  12. What a lot you have now! My personal favourites are the French knots and – of course – the teeny tiny hexies!

  13. What an interesting idea and a magnificent collection. You are so clever.

  14. Your tags are a delight! The one with a pocket caught my eye the most. A unique diary.

  15. That is a really cool idea to try out new techniques or refresh old ones – wow! I really love the French-Knot tag in particular, it came out so pretty, and it must have taken you ages. Is this an ongoing project or will it end in December?
