Rainbow Challenge Scrap Happy Saturday

Well I put a few red scraps together with a bit of iron on Peltex and made these bookmarks that I've made many many times before.
Just iron red solid to the back, and a zig zag stitch all around and there you have it.

This next project is a mess! I don't know where it's going. I thought I had an idea, but it doesn't  want to go in that direction. You know, it has a mind of it's own. I should have expected as much. I don't care for the red rose fabric at all. I don't like the color. When I ordered it last Oct. I thought it was a bit more on the pink side. Which would have been great as I was collecting fabric for a pink charm swap. Well as you can see it's not pinkish it's kind of and orangey red.

I'll try to work on this a little more and maybe I'll have something decent to show next week.

Well, I suppose if you don't love a fabric, then used up is the best place for it to be. I think it is quite pretty, though I do see what you mean about it being too orange.

There are so many varieties of "red"...from bluish red to orangey red to pinkish red...it's hard to tell until you see the fabric in daylight what you're getting.

Your bookmarks look nice, and I bet you will turn your rose-fabric project into something beautiful, also.

Hi, your bookmarks are very nice. And maybe you can find a good use for the rose-fabric block.

I love the red bookmarks. I'd never thought of making bookmarks from fabric. Also I like the rose fabric - I'm kind of partial to that orangey red color.

I like your bookmarks :) I also like your kaliedescope orangey red partial block. Maybe you could make it into a bag panel. Try using a complimentary colour for the background... would a blue work with it? I haven't got my colour wheel handy. Hmm I look forward to seeing what you do with it. Elly
