Hooked Miniatures

Hooked Miniatures
Wool Strips on Linen, 2012
each 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"

These pieces began with the idea they would become hooked Artist Trading Cards.  However, when I designed the patterns, I didn't consider that the hooking would enlarge the design.  ATCs are supposed to be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", so I decided to finish these as ornaments.  Each piece has a strip for hanging, a wool backing (to cover the backside of the hooking), and a strip around the edge to neaten the sides. The cat's eyes and nose and the crabs eyes are glass beads.
