Self Portrait 1975

A few years ago when I started working on the redwork of my unique, spirited daughter & handsome nephews, I also did one of me.

The photographs from that 1975 photo session at Olan Mills are so cute, if I do say so myself. I was 13 months old & started walking that day, right in the studio!

So, I thought a close up of my face would make a good redwork pattern. Unfortunately, I had this frilly, Little House on the Prairie nightcap type hat. The folds & ribbons made it a little difficult to transfer onto the fabric. However, I think the end result came out, well CUTE!
