Die Cut Dreams - fabric

This week at Die Cut Dreams the theme is fabric, but you must use material other than ribbon or trim to be in with a chance to win this weeks prize. Fantastic work to be inspired by at the DCD blog.

I altered a jar, covered the lid and made a belly band with gingham fabric. Flowers are Wild Orchid and the image is Penny Black.
