My daughter and I are collaborating on a story, my doodles turn into illustrations and we write about them, hoping to turn it into a book someday... anyway, here is one of my drawings/doodles/illustrations.
I won't include the brief story about the 'Choosing Ceremony' that goes with it.
Back in the early 70's my aunt made a trio of these for my mom so I thought I would try to duplicate the pattern. It was all done with felt, craft glue, misc. trim, beads, sequins. My mom said she thought they originally appeared in Family Circle magazine, if anyone has ever seen them before I would love to hear about it!
I've been wanting to do this since that article came out in Craft Magazine! Finally got around to trying and they are almost done! A few more times adding very fine dust and the moisture should be gone. Right now they look good but are easily scratched and need more shine.
