I added the corn....
I know..... (it is not a pretty picture of tobacco!)
You may be asking why I would include this???
It is just a simple offering of thanks.
She is becoming more....
I added a strip of cloth I hand dyed a while back. I stitched the backside of the cloth so it would stay in place. I then added 3 crow feathers by wrapping the top of each of them with different colors of thread.
I stitched a tranquil looking clay "face" bead on the front to represent the male side. I have more work to do on it...I am going to add more beads to it and maybe paint symbols on it???? I have not completely decided yet.
Also, initially I was concerned because the leather was heavier and that it would not "rattle" properly, but once I added the corn it seemed to balance things out and it has a somewhat "quiet" rattle.....
that is ok.
Each rattle is unique and she is a quiet one.
