Clutch for dragonfly

Last night I gathered jewel tone fabrics and set to work creating a home for the Kreinik Hot-Wire dragonfly.
I wired a bead body to the wings then placed it on a jacket to give those who don't CQ an optional idea. A brooch would be a wonderful and welcome gift to anyone I think.
I decided on a clutch. The top piece is the flap where the dragonfly will "live". I will be embellishing and perhaps assembling this clutch today. It is foggy so no need to venture outside. Have a great day!


  1. Your work is so beautiful. I would love to crazy quilt but I am afraid that my stitches aren't up to par. I love that dragonfly. I am going to use your idea to have my class make hearts for the victims of the Christchurch earthquake and butterflies for the Houston Holocaust museum's butterfly project. I had been looking for something that I thought my class could handle and this looks like it. Thanks so much for sharing all your great ideas. I have your book too, and as soon as summer vacation hits, I am going to give a crazy quilt project a try. I am sure it won't be as beautiful as your work!

  2. I will be looking for this "Hot Wire"

  3. Your dragonfly is gorgeous! Can't wait to see the finished clutch :)
    A great day to you too!
