Kirsten is a Red Panda Beads customer who specializes in Amulet bags.
Kirsten modeled this bag from a cross stitch pattern. It is lovely!
Pattern is by Diane Hertzler. She has a website (http://www.dianehertzler.com/) but this pattern is not shown there. If you are interested in buying her pattern you might want to email her.
The pattern is "Oh! Scarlet" by Amy Loh-Kupser. The pattern or a kit is available from i-bead.com (look under Kits/Patterns, then Beadfuddled Beader, Vol. 4>
Isn't this Jack-o-lantern just too cute? Kirsten printed a picture of a jack-o-lantern off the web & taped it inside a votive candle holder. Then brick stitched the pumpkin, adding the face based on the underlying image. The vines are wire twisted around a wooden skewer.
It took about a month of working on it 3-4 hrs/day! According to the pattern, it contains 23,010 beads! Pattern by Sig Wynne Evans.
