things I have made

I have been in a creative mood for a while now, and have tried to get somethings I have had in mind into being. Here are a few of the things I have finished. I made this pincushion from a cream pitcher, the poof is made from recycled velvet and the lace is a garage sale find, very nice. I made the ribbon flowers and leaves. And the velvet strawberry is one of my favorite things to make, they all turn out so cute.

This is a brooch, you can wear it on your lapel, add it to a hat or handbag, really you could put it on anything a pin would go through. It is a handcrafted ribbon pansy, backed by organdy ribbon, I made the fuchsias from satin ribbon and stamens, I pick up the stamens at garage sales they are now quite expensive to buy new.
Another brooch, this one had been in my sewing box for probably 10 years, and I Finlay finished it. The center flower is a cabochon rose, a bit of a challenge to get stated but it finishes easy. Again the fuchsias make an attractive addition.

I have been thinking about a heart like this off and on for years, this is just one version I came up with. It seems like things take on a life of their own when I start them, I might have an idea of the completed item but it rarely comes out as planned. As you add things it just seems it has to go the way it wants, I know that is crazy but it seem that way. :)
All of these items are for sale on my new Bonanzel site.
