I did it!
My amulet bag is finally complete!
So, you may recall that waaaaaaay back in 2015, I entered a Stitch in Time amulet bag challenge blog hop that I revealed here. I decided to make my purse out of single-drop peyote, like a chump, and only finished the pouch portion.
I wasn’t sure how I wanted to finish the clasp, flap, or strap. All I knew was that I wanted to use some of those pretty, organic-looking ceramic pieces by Scorched Earth. I decided to set it aside until I figured out how I wanted to finish it. And then I never came back to it.
Finishing it became one of my resolutions for 2016 and then, when I completely failed to pick it back up again, it became a resolution to finish it in 2017. THEN I saw this challenge on Art Elements and was allowed to join in and finish my amulet bag!
AND I FINALLY FINISHED IT.
The dangles act as a sort of button clasp and the pouch is big enough for some cards, your ID, and some folded bills. Maybe a chapstick or two?
The chain attached is long enough that you can wear it on one shoulder at the hip, or across your body, so it sits at the waist.
Here’s a few detail shots. The pouch is single drop peyote and the flap is a combo if peyote, horizontal netting, and some overlapping circles I freeformed.
Thanks so much to Cathy for letting me participate in the challenge, even though I had already started my amulet bag. I am so glad to finally have this thing finished. It was my very first amulet bag and I’m really happy with how it turned out.
Take a second and check out what everyone else made for the challenge!
