who have donated so generously
for my Pink Ribbon Textile Jewels !

We reached together a grand total of

to the US.
(I hope they arrive as safely
as all the others that went abroad)

day 31 : the VERY LAST Pink Ribbon day !

I did another "double decker",
similar to the jewel of day 11
only in different colours.
It is still special
that you can create so many different shapes with felt !

When stitching on the jewels
it is fun to use different coloured threads
together in one needle.
Though it IS annoying that those threads
easily catch onto the sequins and beads that are already in place.
but I think the end result is very rewarding !

My VERY  LAST
PINK  RIBBON  Textile Jewel for day 31 :


a wet felted double brooch with a tiny felted disc and ball in the middle,
stitched with cotton, rayon and metallic thread
and sequins and seed beads
(6 cm,   2.4")

For a donation
of at least


 € 15 

SOLD !

this very last sunny Textile Jewel can be yours.
To wear yourself
or to give to someone you love !
You just need to send me an email at
  fiberrainbow@gmail.com  
or tell me in the comments below
and all the next steps will be arranged !

ALL your money goes to

 "LET  THE  SUN  SHINE  IN" 


NO MORE
 TEXTILE JEWELS TOMORROW !!!




When stitching with multiple threads
you have to move carefully
and NOT to use too long threads . . .


Hmmmmm, SO good if it turns out
you have JUST enough thread
to reach the last stitch !

day 30

In our small garden we have three trees
(and two smaller ones that aren't exactly "trees" yet !)
The biggest (now)
is the Ginkgo biloba
I love it because the tree crown is very open
so it doesn't give too much shade for the rest of the plants.
Right now it starts getting more and more yellow leaves
until the entire tree is a golden glow
just before shedding all that gold to the ground.

No wonder I had to try another leaf !

My PINK RIBBON Textile Jewel
for day  30 :


a wet felted leaf, stitched with cotton, silk and gold thread,
gold bullion thread, some sequins and seed beads
(8,5cm x 11cm (is plus stem)    3.35 x 4.35")

For a donation
of at least

€ 15

SOLD !

this shimmering leaf can adorn your garment,
or you can make it a present for someone dear to you !

I knew exactly when and on what to use them !
