Having just finished a Ruth Rae inspired poetry pinafore for Cheri's new granddaughter, Evie, I decided to create one for the newest The Play Date Café Challenge. The color are grass green, gold, and silver.
My "Hope" pinafore is made from hand-dyed muslin, stamped , and embellished with some Michael's bling. The leaves are wool felt layered with book text and organza. I sewed beads around the neckline and scattered around the pinafore. The front is machine free motion stitched with Hope
On the back I wrote the Emily Dickinson poem which reads: "Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without words and never stops at all." All "i"s are dotted with gold or silver seed beads.
