Pretty Pinkeeps

For the March program Marie Z. led us through making a small pin keep – no stitching required! The little padded pinkeeps are made from images printed onto fabric and backed with silk. A narrow ribbon covers the edges. Some members chose to send Marie their own images to use, while others happily chose from the selection of images from vintage advertising cards Marie had on hand at the February meeting.

The guild covered the cost of the materials for the pinkeeps and everyone had a great time assembling their pinkeeps. Take a look…

So much fun! And it was fun to see all the different images everyone selected. Plus, we were all able to go home with a finished project!

And now for something completely different…ahem…Show and Tell:

Lookee here – that stinker Robert has already finished all the stitching on his Friesland Winders’ Keeper for the Amy Mitten SAL. Gorgeous!!
