I'm a "Yankee Doodle Dandy" Lace, Occhi, Frivolite, and Sukkulapitsi

The biggest celebration of the summer is the "4th Of July" :)
This Pinchicks Post may seem the same as last month but I so enjoyed making these little brooches it's fun for me :) 

Betsy Ross 
Is the woman that made the five pointed star on our flag.
When the country was forming they were going to place a 6 pointed star on the flag because the five pointed star was too hard to make.
She got out her scissors and showed them how to make the perfect 5 pointed star :)
Below is the picture of the free page to print off from Pinterest

After gluing down glass dome with a clear decoupage glue or clear glue that works on glass after dry.
Use a thicker glue to glue to felt. 

Here is the Pinterest link for placing beads around a dome Directions for placing beads around dome click here!

then make rings and chain with beads till you encircle cameo!

I attached with beads to felt.


Loved so much, I am making another one :)

You can burn the ends of ribbon if non-cotton or silk.

Looks good with even more tatting, huh?

Happy Birthday America!

Have a wonderful week!

  11. Beautiful! I have always loved Betsy Ross and her story. I grew up in Philadelphia, and I clearly remember visiting her house on Arch Street near 2nd. We knew how to get there because of a song we learned at school. I would love to go back!

    1. Wow, I visited the liberty hall and the Bell but did not think of visiting there, or that her home was there at all, I lived in Maryland and very close that it's wasn't to far, now I wished to go back so see her home, how exciting.
