Inchies


Hi everyone. This week's inchy's theme was a "peg bag" (clothespin bag to some of us) in the shape of a baby's kimono or shirt. I googled for kimono and came up with a site that had lots of different clothing items on it called Origami Club. Check it out.


I thought I'd go with the idea of the shirt and used some floral wrapping paper. The flowers didn't end up showing up on such a small piece but it looked hawaiian so I went with that.


I added a few size 15 seed beads and ran around the edge with a pink Prismacolor pencil, added some tiny words (I didn't know I could print out such tiny print and have it come out clear - you learn something more every day!) and I was done. Come and join in the fun over at Inchybyinch. The more the merrier!

Several years ago a friend of mine gave me a clothespin bag in this style! I'd never seen one like it before. I used it as a decorative element in my studio until we moved. Fun!

Thank you for visiting my Blog and leaving a comment, too!

Your inchie turned out great!! I did an inchie swap a month or so ago and we had to draw and paint something. I've never worked that small before. I know now how challenging that ca be.

You did a great job on yours. It's so cute!

Very cool blog! Guess what I do inchies!! Much of my jewelry are 1 inch diameter fused glass circles with pictures in dichroic glass, gold paintings and wire embedded designs. Links to pictures on my blog, enter glass in the search area, old stuff on my webshots and a few on my neglected web page! Thanks for your comment on my blog (hands) its fun to explore the blog world and see all the interesting things people are in to.

Thanks for the kind comment you left on my blog. I had to open my dictionary for "inch" ... that's small! I like your "inchies"! And I love your ATCs, particularly the one you call "sea anemones", it's so beautiful!
