Southeastern Ribbon & Patchwork

Southeastern patch worked pillow and denim jacket/vest, Tuscarora calico cloth dress with Osage ribbon work and metal disks. Tuscarora cotton dresses with ribbons, machine embroidered spiral edging and metal disks and Tuscarora Nation women’s traditional dresses were made by Pura Fe Crescioni.

 

The works below were all inspired by the Southeastern patch work shown above, which I originally started to do to pass the time during family holidays and long meetings (pillow and denim jacket/vest). The animal skin shaped works are samples for the Indigenous Iconic Earth Altar Fiber Installation.
