Geisha's and Dragons

This week for some of the challenges i entered for the facebook group  Ditzy-Craftymess we did some Geisha's and dragons here is what i came up with hope you like them plus a step by step how i made the hanging good luck charm.

First of all you need the danglers get a piece of card and wind round the card a few times depending on how thick you want the danglers

Cut the string from the card and Davide by 3.
Next do the same with some gold sting or in my case embroidery floss and Davide this in the 3 piles of floss.

Fold in half one of the piles and cut a piece of floss and tie round the top of the fold this is a bit fiddly but can be done make sure it is tight and leave a end for later.

This is what you should end up with do the same with the other two piles of floss.

Then stamp your dragon image onto white paper or card and add to some stiff card outline the image with black.

Now you are ready to add the danglers this is done by making hole with a pin first then a sewing needle though the top you left on the floss. put one end in then the other end and tie at the back. do the same with all 3 pieces.

Here are all 3 done and this is what you should end up with. Next thread some more floss thought two holes in the top of the image to make a hanging then add the good luck coin so to hang it with.

And this is what you end up with

Here another pic of it i think it looks good.
