I have a friend that is reaching a milestone
year in her life. She is will be 60 years young.
I can remember when I was in grade school
thinking people in their 50's and 60's as being
ancient! Funny how our thoughts on age change.
I wanted to make a special gift, after all when
you are 60 what do you really need?
So, I put my creative crafting hat on and
went to work.
A necklace came to mind, but not just
any necklace a special necklace to
celebrate a special birthday.
I have a few older pennies and was lucky
to find one from 1953. I also had a coin
holder to put it in. I had found the coin
holder last summer at a flea market. There
were 4 pennies from random years on
a bracelet. I knew one day the coins or
holders would come in handy.
I added the bird charm and a small
deep red crystal. Garnet is the birthstone
Necklace made.....now a little something
A crazy quilted pouch. I had thought it
could be used for her cell phone, credit cards,
or a tissue holder. Here is the back.
All the seams have been stitched with a
feather stitch on my sewing machine.
The initial on the front, I stitched
by hand. So, here it is a special
gift for the birthday girl!
Happy Birthday Pat!
Love to all,
