The first preparation begins with cutting the pierogi shape from wool felt and folding it over to create a pocket into which I stuffed a good amount of polyester filling. The pierogi is then sealed with a few stitches of embroidery floss and a loop of satin string is attached for easy hanging.
The second pierogi preparation is very similar to the first. However, instead of being hung from a loop of string, a silver bar pin was firmly sewn to the back and covered with matching felt for a finished appearance.
That’s right … Four, count ‘em, FOUR finds this week! I have been adding things to my favorites like crazy because I keep seeing items I want for myself while Christmas shopping for others (oops!). Not sure if I want to start doing the collage thing for my Finds too … We shall see.
Enjoy the handmade loveliness!
Where you can get ‘em:
Rain Cloud Brooch by Christina Dewey – Her shop is super-friggin’-cute! I love the simplicity and delicate craftsmanship that clearly goes into creating each of her accessories.
Organic Cotton Scarf by Jenna Rose – Such a bright and fun color and I am loving the little pine cones on it.
