You guys are so awesome you know that right?
Good idea with the towel. I was out today and forgot the wool wash again! Grr but tomorrow is grocery day and the supermarket is bound to have some for me!
I tried crochet a long time ago. I was good at finger crochet when we were kids, and thats about 12-14 years old when we were making pride, aids and breast cancer awareness bracelets as were the popular fashion when I was in school.
(I still have all that yarn too!)
I could never pick it up and mom got very frustrated teaching me. When I learn something new I really have to have one on one in person teaching. I learn by watching and following along.
I really like this bear idea. I don't have much of it left. Maybe enough in the three small balls combined to make the equivalent of a single ball of yarn.
If I had a sewing pattern for a bear I could make one berry easily!
What's this felting and how is it done?
The yarn itself is very lightweight and fuzzy, it's dark in here now so I'll have to take a picture tomorrow afternoon. Might even make his paws and nose from the black I have that is the same texture if I do a bear. Oh he'll be so funky looking. The old wool is a plum lavender. I love black and purple together . Kinda gothy, kind of cute.
My daughter has a decapitated doll that my friend who owns the goth shop gave to her so having different looking toys is certainly not new in our house. The doll is really really cute, it's hand made and really adorable, little plushy girl doll.
I have a lot of unique friends.
My daughter is having a hand made custom corsette dress done this summer just because she deserves to look like a real princess and we've figured out a way to make it not so restricting and still have it look authentic.
My friends are all very skilled at many different things. Some make clothes, dolls, some work with leather, some work with fake hair and make just the wildest things.
We have a unique group.
I can make anything out of pink polystyrene and own a giant lumberjack axe that I made for the woodcutter in a stage production of into the woods.
Our "Family of Choice" the people around us, well lets just use the word diverse. And then you can sell us to showcase or HBO because we would be watched more than the Osbourne's and Gene Simmons combined.
OT axe is not in the spell checker and it wants me to change it to Saxe, axle, axes, or axer ! No wonder some of the words I use don't come up!
