Fiber Art Memorial

I created this fiber art memorial for my neighbors who lost their daughter, Frankie Sue, at the age of 44.  It is not finished as I’ve left room for them to add their own mementos of her.

Dog Bandanas and Pottery Necklace

I sewed these bandanas for the neighbor’s poodle, Copper.  It’s just a simple straight stitch and they are held on with velco…I actually sized them on my cat, Ozcar! Smile

I finally completed a necklace using a pottery pendant I fired in the last load.  I strung lavender and green seed beads onto jewelry wire and wrapped the strand in green ribbon and crimped both in gold endcaps.  The pendant is attached with gold wire that was wrapped to create a double jump ring.

Birthday Card

This is a card I made for my brother-in-law.  The card base is dark blue cardstock cut to 7”x10” for a 5”x7” card.  I cut green cardstock to size and used decorative scissors on one side then punch small holes with a 1/16” hole punch.  The image and sentiment are from the Stampin’ Up Ruff Day set.  The image was colored  with Distress Inks used like watercolor paint.  I adhered the image to a square of craft cardstock and attached a piece of ribbon with the Tiny Attacher.
