I pieced the little block for the top from red velvet, black and red silks and some brocade as well as a fancy fabric I received this week as a gift. I attached a red moon face I made from Fimo and surrounded it with black Mill Hill beads as well as red petit Mill Hill Beads. The fan is a piece of reclaimed jewelry from the thrift store and I used the same petit red beads to create a tassel. I made some silk ribbon roses in red and black. There are a couple of bead blossoms attached in one patch. Most of the seam treatments are simple stitches done in gold metallic thread - the other two are done with more Mokuba trims.
Once again the construction was the difficult part - this one doesn't seem to want to close tightly now it is put together. Too much stuff on it? I hope the recipient likes it anyway - it looks pretty sitting open because of the petit point. Until I mail it, it is sitting here with a jar of pennies on it in the hopes it will get over its stubborn streak! lol
