Pacific Northwest Tribal Dragonfly:


1960s surfboards:


Picot-stitched Flower:


Henna-inspired Paisley:


And this is the secret to their weight and shape, an inexpensive faux turquoise bead:

These turned out so great! Mind me asking, how did you deal with the backside of the pendant? My faves are the dandelion and the paisley one (henna inspired?).

I can't believe I didn't take one picture of the back! *sigh*
I finished them off very much how Ludi discusses in her hoop backing tutorial. I used a running stitch around the edge of the fabric and pulled it tight over the bead. Then I stitched back and forth across the back to pull the material tight and get rid of bumps. Then I cut a little square of felt and whipped-stitched around it's edges to hide the mess on the back. Cheesy I hope that makes sense!
