CC3C - Frayed Fabric

Happy New Year!!! I wish each and every one of you the most blessed and love filled year yet! It's time for another challenge in the new Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge!!! Kudos to all the entrants from the last challenge during the busiest time of year, and for all the comments!  The Curiosity Crew and I always have our socks knocked off by all the wonderful work and we are so inspired as well!
This new challenge, number nineteen is Frayed Fabric. I just LOVE Tim's Eclectic Elements Fabric, and it can be used in a million ways, but for this challenge we want to see the technique mentioned on page 66. I am so looking forward to all the entries. Please play along so you can win some fabulous prizes donated by the ever generous Tim and Mario, and this challenge's sponsor, Inspiration Emporium!!! You will have two weeks to complete this challenge and link it up to the CC3Challenge site, and you can read all the rules here. Please take the time to visit every member of the Curiosity Crew (See below.) for not only some gorgeous fabric pieces, but for a chance to win some extra goodies!
Tim's birthday is on January 7th, so I decided to make him a card of sorts using the Frayed Fabric technique. I hope he likes it.
 
 
I added Velcro so that the card can be closed, and perhaps Tim can use it to store mementos of his times at Disney.
A pocket inside stores a gift card.
 

Supplies:

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!

  51. This is such a cute and thoughtful project, I love the fabric and stitching. I love the thread colors and how the red and white fabric looks like tissue tape. Maybe it is tissue tape. Mickey is so cute hanging out on his frayed fabric and the pocket inside is adorable! The perfect gift! I just got back from Disneyland! So crowded but fun!
