I have been working on this when I had time and even when I did not have time. By that I mean I was beading it in my sleep and in my mind while I was at work LOL. I am really excited, can you tell! So here it is.
Now, when this amulet bag challenge came up I originally wanted to make something Native American since we are part Native American. But I could not find out what tribe we descended from so I decided to go with Chief Blackhawk. There is a statue of him near where I grew up. My Mom had a painting of him in her living room. Me and my brother both have a small statue of him in our front yards. We really like him, lol. Even though I really love Blackhawk nothing was coming to me so I went to my favorite sports team. The Chicago Blackhawks. So here it is (finally! LOL)
This is the front of the bag with the Blackhawks Logo on it.
This is the back with the tomahawk logo on it. This is the shoulder patch on the jerseys. The fringe is made with black twisted bugles, black and white 8/0 seed beads, red bicones and small dragon scale beads. The bag measures 4x7 including the fringe. I really love it!
This week also over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is dolphin. For this one I did a dolphin playing with a beach ball.
Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is poetry. I had a hard time with this one. I thought about doing a raven but did not like the look of it so I went with a hand writing with a quill pen. I don't think that it really looks like what I wanted it to, but still.
I want to thank everyone for stopping by and leaving me comments, they always make me happy. If you want to participate in EIM or 2x2x2 jut follow the links and enjoy the fun, you're welcome! LOL Have a blessed and creative week.
A big WOW to the necklace and the amazing bag.ReplyDelete
Both inchies are so beautiful.
Love Chrissie xx
Thanks so much Chrissie, glad you like itDelete
Very nice necklace with amulet bag. Almost looks like peyote stitch which is difficult for me to figure out around a rope. :)ReplyDelete
Lynn,the necklace is tubular herringbone,and the amulet is peyote. It took me some time to figure out the herringbone so don't give up you will get it, and thanks for the complimentDelete

GREAT amulet bag and I absolutely LOVE the quill pen! Keep doing what you're doing and have a great week too!ReplyDelete
Thanks Becca, I just started physical therapy today so I am gonna have a great week! You do the same!Delete
Wow, that amulet bag is amazing. I can't believe you cut the necklace part. Yikes! Sweet little playful dolphin and that hand drawing is clever. As an aside, I appreciate your information on kaleidocycle. I watched a video and was amazed to see it is similar to a card I just did. I made a "private" video on YouTube, but here is a link for you to see it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2J0pk0l-b4oReplyDelete
