New Vintage Handkerchief Pieces

I've been working on some new pieces using another vintage handkerchief.  I realized I should start getting shots of the handkerchief before I cut it up, but you can get the idea of the starting point from this picture.

I started by making another bird.  This one is kind of a fancy bluejay.  I haven't named her yet.  What do you think, does she look like a Lucy?

I'm also using some pieces to create some wooden pendants.  These will be hung from long chains with beaded accents. 

I'm hoping to get all these pieces finished and in the shop soon.  Currently I have one of my previous handkerchief birds in the shop and you can see it here.


  1. I love the colors in these! And Lucy sounds like a perfect name :)

  2. Love them- so gorgeous! The colors are striking!

  3. jenny, she is very pretty. And the pendants sound like a great idea.


  4. I've purchased some pendants like that recently but i never thought to make my own. What a great idea! Are you using something like modge-podge and adhering them to wood?

    1. Bella- Yes, I use Mod Podge to glue them on and then a varnish to seal it all.

  5. I love your new handkerchief bird! The turquoise is beautiful. I think that Lucy suits her. I look forward to seeing the new pendants.
