A Stitchery Fragment and Introducing SUSPENDER CLIPS

I whipped up this little fragment for a friend who kindly added some stitching to my linen currently making the rounds of the QB5. And I added a rusted suspender clip as a hanger so this stitchlet is now ready to display. The fragment is made from a scrap of tattered quilt, an antique hanky, lace and buttons.


I am offering the suspender clips for sale in my etsy shop. You can get them very rusted or just lightly pitted. Either way, they will add a unique and functional detail to your art quilt or assemblage. Would also be a unique link or hanger in jewelry making. I am just beginning to experiment with them myelf, but I already think that they are the coolest things since buttons and keys in altered art.


Sold by the half dozen.
Once you clamp them down, they hold on tight!

I think the clips are great, but I am IN LOVE with those sweet little birdies! I am thinking I need to learn to embroider...
