Black Velvet......

Here's a peek at some new things I am working on.....I love velvet, even more so if it happens to be black.

Kind of looks like a tuxedo doesn't it?

Strawberry scissor holder and fob......

Une poire.....

You are MORE than creative! I'm in awe this morning. And I'm thinking of a whole room designed around these three items :) A formal crafting area...

If we put our heads together we might be dangerous Margaret!

Beautiful! The black makes it all so elegant!

Just beautiful, Margaret! I love the creamy colored lace with the black velvet. I could picture a lady of the court in her velvet gown with the lace cuffs with this fabric.
