Width: 8.5"   Length: 10.25"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics, raw edge applique and embellishments.

Artist's Statement: This little Sue is one from the lot of Sues I purchased at a tag sale. Three other Sues have been sent to AAQI. This Sun Bonnet Sue has more fabric stress and deterioration than any of the other Sues, so I used a variety of pink fabrics to raw edge appliqué hearts to help stabilize the dress area. Placement of the hearts was a challenge. So much of the dress area needed to be covered and yet there were some good portions of the original fabric that I wanted to show. After sever auditions I settled on what you now see. I also added some heart embellishments to the bonnet and a little key charm in her hand.
