Happy Father's Day

Dad has been gone many years and we still miss him.  This year, for Father's Day, I stitched cards for our sons and brothers depicting some of the fishing lures from Dad's collection.   


My brother has the remaining few lures mounted for display.  Dad made some of his lures.  I do not know if he made any of these.  I think Dad would be pleased that the lures have been preserved and we still enjoy them. 



The Cards

A variety of fabrics and papers were used for the foundation.  Fabrics were appliqued for the body of each lure. 




Decorative paper foundation.



A decorative stitch was used to create the patterned fabric before cutting the applique shape.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I stitch fishing lures from time to time and would like to label the pictures with the name of the lure. Perhaps I will contact you through your site or blog to see if you can provide the name of the lure.

There are various types of fishing and each has its own style. Ice fishing, fly fishing, saltwater fishing, and freshwater fishing, regardless the type of fishing you are into, it is always important to have the proper gears. If you do not have the proper equipment you will hardly enjoy the real fun. And as you are here reading this article, let’s assume that you are at least interested in fishing
