I've been working on this mystery sampler by Cloudsfactory called Fabulous Women in History. Each month, I get two new ladies to add to my sampler. The month of July included Frida Kahlo and Amelia Earhart. Frida Kahlo was painting one of her recognizable self portraits, Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird, in her section of the sampler.

Since her birthday was around the corner, I figured a design of her would be an idea project to celebrate.

I decided to take the try to put the self portrait on a wooden pendant. I found a four pack of pendants at Joann's. I think it turned out quite well. I had to measure and alter the pattern very slightly as I could not fit the whole size of the canvas, but the important parts were there: her hair, the thorns, the bird, a thin border, her eyebrows.

Awesome! Such a cute little pattern and you made it fit perfectly on the pendant. Love the finished piece.
