Sew it's Tag Tuesday!

It's my sisters Theresa's 60th birthday today so my creative efforts this week have gone into her card & gifts and sugar flowers for her cake, which I'll be making for her fancy dress party on Saturday
I will be posting more about all this later tonight
(after I have given her the gifts)
I haven't had a lot of time this week to think about,
never mind make a tag for this weeks theme 'Sewing'
I made this last night about 11.45pm when I finished Theresa's present
Sew! this is a very quick offering of a tag, but I kinda like it.
The gold zig zag stitching was already on this clothing tag, so it was a good one to use
A rummage in the button jar and 'allsorts' drawer produced the embellishments.
A closer look at this sweet little vintage glass button in its brass casing
 with vintage green thread still attached,

 and the metal screw handle from my old sewing basket which is long gone

 At the bottom, a cute little vintage shoe button and miniature scissors hooked onto a safety pin stitched at the ends to hang from the zig zag stitching to finish.
Tag: Re purposed clothing tag, linen thread label
Embellishments: Buttons, hooks, safety pin, metal sewing basket handle, miniature scissors.
Tie: Ribbon.
On the subject of sewing, Embroiderer's Guild tonight, returning after a long hiatus 
We are doing beaded fringing..... looking forward to it!

I saw your tag over on Tag Tuesday and thought I would pop over and check out your blog. Your tag is great I think it has a sort of Steam Punk feel to it.
