Her Dad's Shirt...

These are the elements of my next commission project. My client brought all these precious pieces to me so that I could make a very special tablet case for her.
They are significant to her because they belonged to her father, who has passed. The crocheted ornaments were created by a family member (her mom, I think), and she asked that I incorporate them into my design, as well. I have permission to age them because there are discolored areas in the lace.
The penny was embossed with a shriner insignia and her father carried it. I have a few ideas for adding it to the design, at the same time protecting it from loss or damage. The silver pin will also be added, but I'm still contemplating how I want to attach it so it will be good and secure, too.
 
I'm honored that my client entrusted these items to me - and I'll do my best to honor the meaning that these items hold for her.

I'll start working on the design today and will share the finished case with you during the week. 
 
Happy February, my friends.

What a challenge. What fun. I had ideas spinning in my head as to how I would attach things. I hope you will show it to us when you finish. Oh, it will be so much fun for you.
