day 3!


hello again! today i have a key chain for y'all. i cut about a 2x2 square with about 1in long middle piece for the hoop out of some vintage fabric, then i cut another just 2x2 square. i looped the middle piece around the key chain and hand sewed the 2 pieces together. i was going for a very folk art look to this piece. i embossed a spider and bat from unity stamp co on to the fabric. the fabric is crazy old, so when i heated it up, it really smelled. the faces are made out of polymer clay and i added mirco beads before i baked them to the eyes. added 3 beads to each corner and done! cute, little key chain! now go to the sidebar and get to hopping! enjoy! lisa

You cracked me up talking about how the fabric smelled! LOL! Oh...how we suffer for our art! I think my favorite bit of your keychain are the little faces you made. They are incredibly awesome and fun!

Very cute! embossing is difficult on fabric, as the fabric absorbs the melting enamel. been there done that!
great job.

Great idea! Somebody said they could almost smell the fabric - it's one of those things you never forget. I love your little faces too!
