For this week, Kristin gave us 2 reds and 1 metallic to work with. First I thought, that this combination was even worse than last week’s purple and yellow but very soon I had several ideas popping up in my head. I considered painting a friend’s finger nails with a crazy pattern, creating an early Christmas card, and making a pretty berry dessert, decorated with bits of leaf gold. As you can see I dropped all those amazing ideas and sewed a cuff instead :).
I played with all kinds of metallic buttons and finally chose a silver dragonfly as the focal point. The cuff turned out less embellished that I had in mind originally. I had tried to add more beads, other fabrics and scraps of lace but nothing really appealed to me. I just like a rather simple look for this piece.
If you didn’t participate in the challenge, what would you have created?
Have a great weekend
Happy 4th of July
to all my American friends!
