“Magpie’s Hoard”

“Magpie’s Hoard” Copyright 2014 by Susan Brubaker Knapp

I’ve been wanting to create a piece to showcase some of the cool embellishments I’ve made, and some of the interesting materials I have found. This is the result. I put it together very quickly, as it is only about 12" x 16", and I already had many of the embellishments made. The hand stitching probably took the longest!

“Magpie’s Hoard.” Cotton fabric (including commercial fabrics and hand-dyed fabrics), burlap, dye magnet, Angelina fiber and film, cheesecloth, Mylar, Tyvek, wire, glass beads, buttons, melted CD, assorted fibers. Hand stitched and machine free-motion quilted.
