Happy Independence Day πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

In honor of the holiday weekend (and because I cannot yet share my Really Big Project), I couldn’t resist sharing a very small piece constructed in honor of the ultimate summer drink, the gin and tonic ;).

This is actually a fun example of using up some of the strange things that accumulate in my art supply drawers:

  • Emphera saved- the packaging from our favorite tonic water and fun, stitched on
  • Odd bit of iridescent clear plastic = ice cube
  • Scraps of heavy fusible + scraps of silk = slices of lemon and lime
  • Length of polyester cording from my favorite trimmings store, Daytona (in the garment district) = zigzag stitched on as a binding
  • Scrap of denim from a favorite OLD pair of jeans = background 

Small projects like this one are an incredibly fun way to celebrate big or small moments in your life…what’s hiding in your “I’ll use this someday” drawer?

Have a wonderful holiday and make memories :)! β˜€οΈ
