Turee Uzette - Confetti Jacket
The glitzy pieces of fabric in this jacket were leftovers from a quilt and a vest. There are sequins by-the-yard from garage sale trims, brand-name labels with metallic thread (from garments, neckties and furs) and two antique cut glass buttons. The mirror-looking pieces are junk compact disks, cut up in pieces and the jacket is closed with a large hook-and-eye from a garage sale fur. At this time it is not for sale.
Wild Animal Vest
This vest was designed as a background for embroidering the wild animal designs. On the back, the scenery pieces were first fused in place. Then theembroidered animals, satin-stitching and thread painting were done alternately as required. The strips on the front were sewn to a fabric foundation and then the pattern pieces were cut from it. This vest is not for sale.
