DCM - Vist to the Haberdashery Department

This week's dare came from Gillian in the form of:

"G'day all, Gillian here, and it's my turn to dare you all this week
Your card can be any theme you like, just as long as it's got something you'd find in a Haberdashery Department on it
Alright then, grab that old sewing basket of yours or raid your sewing machine drawer, have a look at what creative bits are hidding away there....maybe it's buttons, a zip, hook & eye's, ribbons, braids, Dressmaking patterns, tape measures,Pins & Needles, lace, safety pins or embroidery thread....
so many wonderful little treasures just waiting to be added to your next card :O)
I'm going to add one more rule....
Yes you may stitch on your card, but that can't be your only haberdashery item...."



My haberdashery finds were some old pyjama bottom trouser fabric from Jacob when I shortened his trousers to shorts, some white twill tape, a D ring, a safety pin and some buttons. To this I added some raffia, a tag, a birthday definition sticker and some domed letter stickers.
