Primitive Punch Needle Original ~sailor's Ditty Bag~ Prim Ooak Folk Art For Sale
Creations by my BoneyLittleFingers * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * ** Sailor's Ditty Bag **This is my punch needle interpretation of a sailor's scrimshaw of a mermaid & a ship. It was needle punched on weaver's cloth with hand dyed bamboo in shades of cream, ivory & dark browns. The needlework was sewn to a khaki natural linen which is fully lined with a stiff cotton canvas, and finished with a faux ivory scrimshaw of a bird that I made of polymer clay. Lots of hand-drawn scrimshaw designs, a fringe of cowry shells, plus beads, & hand stitches complete the bag. The back has an additional scrimshaw design of an original nautical quote (my own) that a sailor may have taken to heart.Total measurements are approximately 15" long from the top of knotted strap to the bottom of the cowrys. The needlework is 5.5" x 4". The ditty bag is 7.5" x 5.5". The bag is somewhat rigid, so that it can be displayed by leaning on a tabletop or hung by the strap.*Not a toy or appropriate for small children.* An original work, completely designed and hand-worked, by me and my BoneyLittleFingers, K. L. Harper. Comes from my pet & smoke-free home. I have signed and dated this piece. *===============* please offer only if you intend on paying the full ending sale price within 3 days. A bit about me... I am mostly self-taught, but have attended many art classes & workshops during my formal education & after. I believe I have learned the most about art by simply pushing the paint around. Collecting & displaying small works of art is a great way to enjoy what artists have created, but please, never copy or distribute an artist's work without written permission. These works are protected by copyright, & all rights remain with the artist. ********* Thanks for viewing!
