Pandoras

Yesterday was our monthly meeting of Pandoras. Yesterday was special — my daughter joined us as a New Pandora!! It was so much fun to have her here and watch her work and be creative. I may have to watch my back, the real talent in this family may actually lie in her!

We used cotton canvas to make cuffs or bracelets. I cut the canvas into roughly 12 by 3 inch rectangles. Having a little larger piece to hold in your hand makes handwork so much easier! We used bits and pieces of lace and trims and ribbon flowers; stamps and stamp pads; markers; Glimmer Mist….  to decorate the canvas. Cut, sew, and attach a snap and walla! you have a beautiful bracelet!

Please ignore (if possible) the UGLY tablecloth background in these pictures. It’s the only plastic table cloth I have. I’ve got to go shopping and buy a solid colored plastic table cloth for future!

Grace and Michele working on their bracelets (what a mess we make when we get together!)

Michele played with fabric pastels making a great background for the beading she wants to do when she gets home. Hey Michele! Send me a picture when you’re done!

Grace used a stamp pad, paper flowers, and lace to create a beauty!

Rachel’s bracelet – so soft and feminine! I love it! Who would ever think it started as simple cotton canvas?

Grace and Michele got to meet Kiyah. She is so sweet! Here she is taking a nap in her swing.  (I am so in love!!!)

I’m still working on my bracelet – actually started a second one after the ladies left yesterday. I’ll post in the next day or two and show you my creations.

  1. You’re correct Rachel’s is beautiful. Did she make her lace flowers? Kiyah is so cute. Love those cheeks!

  2. The flowers on Rachel’s bracelet came from Donna Downey’s Studio in Huntersville. It’s on spools and is purchased by the yard.
