Tattered

A long time ago a friend cleaned out her wardrobe and gave me a few of her old shirts and dresses. Over the years I’ve ripped them to bits.

Married them to cheesecloth and strands of embroidery floss. The beaded flower was from another friend.

I like that shiny black button. I think it came from a coat I no longer own.

And that green one. A favorite color, especially when paired with bits of purple.

These were made to be worn as cuffs, wrapped around the wrist and secured by winding the embroidery floss around the button. I wore one of them once. I think it was the one with the green button.
