More Pieces for Mini Quilt

I worked on a couple more pieces for my mini crazy quilt this weekend. I may yet (at a later date) redo the glove so it actually has fingers like the full size one above it, but I'm not quite sure yet whether I am that able. For now this tiny glove will do. It is 3" long by 3/4" wide. With the exception of the fingers not being separated, this mini glove is made just like a real glove - including the thumb being attached separately.

Actually I first did this two strand pearl necklace using 11º pearl seed beads but wasn't real happy with the scale.

I made another one with a little bit bigger bead and just as a single strand 'mini pearl' necklace. I was much happier with the scale of this one. It is about 2 1/4" long.

I'm hoping to work on a fan this weekend. I also have an order to get finished for a full size crocheted wire necklace I will be working on.

What a neat little glove. Such tiny work, the necklace is really something too!

Your glove looks great! If you'd like more definition to the fingers, perhaps a tiny bit of yarn inserted with a needle in a trapunto style? I can't imagine trying to make individual tiny fingers. I know it can be done, but not by me!!
