Little things

I've been looking longingly at Becky Shander's article in Somerset Life and wanting to try my hand at producing a little fabric book necklace and this weekend I had a go.

Wanting to display them on a different background meant I gained a visitor who thought I had got it just for him!

and I experimented with a few more lace colours and words like, Hope, Joy, Peace and Love.
These little books are made with lace folded over with some dryer sheets or muslin/gauzy fabric inside.  Little words hand stamped on other bits of material form the front with the addtion of some pearls, rhine stones and on one (and on Becky's original) a rusty safety pin holds it all together.  Then a piece of string sewn in at the top provides the chain - such a lovely idea.  One of these is going off to a friend tomorrow.

And all the time I had company with me of course!

I love Becky's work and hope you get a chance to pop over there and look too!

These turned out so lovely...and how sweet of you to share one with your friend. Also, thank you very much for the kind words about my artwork...I'm touched.
