Rawhide Gifts Bonnets and Bootjacks,
These are the new denim jacket embroidered denim shirt and denim jacket appliques. I started making several and testing how they would look when sewn on a garment. If push came to shove, my favorites are the most colorful ones done on black.
Some have been embroidered on denim and what is so much fun doing that is each piece of denim (because of weights and dye processes) are different.
I decided that the two I sewed on lighter weight material will go great on a lightweight shirt, but from now on, all the zuni bear applique patches will be sewn on denim or a lighter weight black canvas. Not only will this make the patches more durable in the long run, but the dark color will give excellent contrast to the vibrant colors of these bears.
I have a few more to get embroidered and added to the page, but in the meantime, the ones I have up are here at http://www.rawhidestudios.com/zuni-bear-southwest-native-american-blue-jean-denim-jacket-diy-appliques/
This was such a fun one to do but I've already pre-sold the others and have only one patchwork bonnet remaining. Sadly, I have just not been able to locate material like this. Many of the patchwork fabric looks pale, or the colors are odd or something else seems wrong with it. I will keep looking though, because I really love the fun look of this particular bonnet.
The next one was a delft blue color but the pattern work doesn't really have a delft look to it. It seems that the pattern is more like the kind of artwork and designs done on oriental dinnerware. Either way, the colors are really vibrant and bold. I love it's look , It has a tiny thread running through in places that look a bit metallic which makes the bonnet all the more special.
Right now there are no clickable links on either image to see a larger closeup version but when I put them up tomorrow that should be available to you.
It's taken me awhile to get some of these bonnet brims embroidered. There is a bit of a trick to it I found, as well as it being so time consuming! I spent quite a bit of time just getting the digital file to embroider the flowers correctly and then I tested. The first one came out nice, but not spaced well. I did about 6 of them and while they turned out quite nicely, there is some time involved in each one.
Besides the time in getting the digital files to run correctly, and the testing phase, there was time in hooping each piece, then the embroidery itself, which that part went really fast!
There was time to sew the bonnet itself., too I will have a few to put up soon, I hope, I still haven't gotten the baby bonnet file up yet. I haven't forgotten, But I sure could use a clone right about now.
This bonnet is a really pretty royal blue with forget me not's sewn on the brim in a lighter shade of blue. Too bad I can't get this color anymore because it shows off the embroidery really well 😉
These earrings are hand made and hand painted. They carve the feathers then paint them usnig the colors that the bird they mimic wears. Some I order with beaded dangles, others without. Some are larger, some smaller and some are double sets. I have even had the triple feather sets but sell more of the singles and doubles. I have 4 or more sets to put up yet but please at least visit here to see the new ones I have posted.
This company has ventured out lately into new feather colors and feather combinations. Honestly, I am attracted to colorful things and sometimes reven eally brightly colored things! The Cardinal/Western Tanager earring set is actually striking and beautiful.
All of these earrings are guaranteed but there are a few cavets which are really only common sense. Don't wear them in the pool, shower, sauna or hot tob. Don't wear them to bed. And don't use anything harsh to clean the posts.
Keep in mind that anything you see can be tailor made for you. If you see a set you like but the feathers are too large or too small, for instance, it's a simple matter to order the same set the way you want them!
