Sewing/Seamstress Jewelry Piece

This is my latest Rubber Ducky creation.  July is Pat's birthday month and she selected a Sewing/Seamstress theme.  Pat is a very talented seamstress as well as stamper.  I can't imagine creating a beautiful wedding dress....well, for me curtains would be a big deal.  :)   It took a while to come up with my idea but thankfully it did happen.  :)

I started this jewelry piece with a Tim Holtz Ornate Plate. The pin cushion was made using a piece of fabric...and stuffed it with a small cotton ball.  Next I placed three Swarovski Crystal  beads on a pin and inserted this into the cushion.

Stamp Set:  Rue de Fleurs  [retired]
Fabric:  Beau Chateau
CS:  Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Marina Mist
Embosslit:  Beautiful Wings [smallest butterfly]
Punches:  Large Oval, Scallop Oval, 1/16" Handheld Circle
Miscellaneous:  Scissors and Thimble Charms added to the sides of the plate to dangle
   * Tiny wood spool [I wrapped blue sparkly crochet thread around it]
   * Pink Button with Gold colored center
   * Two luminescent beads [1 blue and 1 pink]
   * Memory Box die was used to make the  flowers to add to the corset.  I took a 1/16" circle
          punch to add blue centers to each flower...then added Dazzling Details to the centers
   * Red Line Tape placed on the front of butterfly and butterfly cut out by hand the second 
          time...then added Dazzling Diamonds and a small Rhinestone Jewel to the center of
          the butterfly. 

Ta Dahhh!!!!!  a finished piece.  :)

Happy Stamping!  Judy  :)

  1. Fabulous dawrling! I used to work as a seamstress and always loved sewing related jewelry. I guess the bridesmaid dress hanging on the door waiting to be altered means I am still a seamstess, but now retired and do work just for family. You are an inspiration.. Glad I found your block on the Tour de Freaks :(
