Miss Millie, our feline extraordinaire, n I
recently completed a dozen giftees for friends attending the annual Summer 2012 ArtGirlz weekend retreat in Little Rhody. Now mind you, these friends are UBER talented in all media, so I needed something very unique to give as a little remembrance!
But I was so pleased with the way these bracelets came out!
I bought the cloth bangles from the clearance bin at Michael’s ( that super bargain alone gets me even more excited, I know that sounds pathetic but….!), wrapped em with torn, raw edge fabric strips tacked down by fabric glue. Made double sided fabric flowers, free motioned embroidered
’em and sandwiched a raw edged and beaded fabric rose in between.
Yes, used a hot glue gun to adhere the flower collage to the bangle.

So these clever sewist/artists friends can look hipster while stitching away!
