One of my friends, who is crazy and wonderful, turned 21 horrendously, inexplicably ancient years old yesterday. Her party is this evening, and I shall be presenting her with this:


Her card is the personalised puzzle of her face.

And here are detail shots:


the strings are one continuous piece of hatband elastic, tied up behind the bottom row of eyelets. The knot is hidden behind the lining, and to keep them from stretching out too much, there's a single row of stitches holding them across the center.


Here's the lining. A few issues you can sort of see, but on the whole I'm happy with how it turned out. And I have plenty of scrap fabric left for more projects! The orange spots are actually shiny, but you can't really see that in this shot.

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
