Mr Boney Maloney

NOT a bug or creepy crawly although it can be said to be a little creepy. A friend of mine sent me a photo of a hair clip with a skeletal hand on it and asked if I could create something similar out of fabric and beads. I took up the challenge…..and here it is.

The hand was originally constructed of wire for the fingers which I then added fabric, wadding and organza too. The fingers are bendable so that whatever position on the head, this is placed in, the fingers can be arranged to look the best they can. There are glass and petite antique beads on the felt covered sinamay fascinator base and tiny beads sewn onto the veiling as well.

It’s modelled on my almost life size doll’s head ‘Lady Persephone’ or Persie to me.
