Amulet Exchange

I participated in an amulet exchange with a few members of the surface design group on yahoo that I joined this past year. Today I received an amulet from a member living in Kentucky and I had to chuckle....the one she made for me was also red like the one I sent her. I guess we both love red.
To make my amulets, I started with a fiber layered piece of fabric I quilted specifically for the project. Then I cut my pieces to business card size and paired it with a cut of ultra-suede and stitched with a satin stitch to make the pouch. I then made an attached beaded necklace for each. It all sounds very simple, and was. As any cool thing, it just took a little time.
I really enjoyed the process and I hope the ladies that are getting them like them too.

  1. Thank you for the post. I like the graphic design of the business card, it looks professional. The font style and color of standard business card dimension is neat.
