Tutorial Play

I found a lovely blog this week. Rebecca Sower She has been inspired by red thread and has inspired me to create a few things of my own.

First, here is a little fabric bucket I made. I used my machine to embroider two little lines of red filligree. I have a very old machine so this was the only pattern I could get to work, but I thought it was pretty.

Second was the crocheted necklace. I love turquoise with red, and I had some beads so, here is my interpretation of her necklace.

She suggested to use lobster clasps as closures, but since I didn't have any, I started with a large bead and then, at the end, crocheted a loop for a closure.

I also made another with some vintage beads, vintage pearls, a few carved animals, and glass beads. I thought it would end up more shabby chic and feminine but it looks more tropical and beach-y.
but I still like it.
