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.
