The Stamp Man Challenge - Card for a queen

After long thinking and a lack of royal inspiration I came up with a 'Gift for a Queen' instead of a card. Do you think these are suitable for the Royal knickers drawer?

Anyway something different to use your stamps with,
Stamping On Fabric.

First I coloured my fabric with the ranger dye inks - after adding lots of water to the fabric - by applying the ink to my non stick craft sheet and wiping it up with my fabric. One piece of fabric I left the natural tea died colour.

Let the fabric dry and stamp the images with stazon ink (also works with the Ranger archival inks) on the fabric. Some of the stamped images I have outlined with embroidery thread and embellished with beads.

Next step is sewing the little bags and filling them with the dried Lavender. After the bags are closed I stitched the button hole stitch all around with embroidery thread (using 2 strands). To finish it I added an crochet edge by using the button hole stitches to attach my crochet stitch. Lavender bag 4 has also a ribbon woven into the crochet stitches.
