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.
