I spent the week tied to my studio creating stuff each day either for trade or for gifts. I have hand dyed, printed and or painted most of the fabrics used.
Funny how I love Sept. and Oct. and find myself indoors, but at least it was doing things that I love. The one thing that spoils it all is that I have to regroup and have to clean up the studio and face the reality that the house is getting neglected. I also need to get another customer quilt on the machine, sigh, the magic was fun while it lasted.
I made the one with the guitar for my cousin who is a musician. She has a music CD out, so she may use it for business cards, but can also be used for ID, CC, etc. for hands free shopping with it hanging around your neck.
As you can see, the guitar "pick" is pulled and it reveals the message I wanted to send to her. I didn't photograph the back before I sent it to her, but what I did was add an extra half pocket on the back side.
(The original pattern was by my friend Norma Jean Brevik from a magic card trick. I have taken on a new twist for their design and loved how they turned out.)
