Type-A Nibbler makes an appearance with some Organza beauties

Day 65

Meet Type-A...an obsessive Nibbler of the rabbit variety....he is the prototype for the craft we are making this Friday at the Momtasterrific Craftery night --the other samples of what we actually will make will be up this week I just wanted to give this little cutie his own page since he was a work-in-progress and is different from his brethren. Doesn't he remind you of something out of one of Leo Leonni's books? (FYI beautiful piece written by his Granddaughter here can you imagine being raised by someone so talented?) This likeness is completely unintentional but apparently I was subconsciously channeling him...I read enough of his books as a child and then to my girls. So many favorites that the books were literally loved to falling apart. Wherever the inspiration came from I will take it because it was so much fun to draw him and make him completely my idea come to life from paper!

Next was a simple white crocheted shawl that I thrifted last week and wanted to add to it with some Spring color--most likely just a wish to not be cold for a few more months....unfortunately did not get a good outdoor picture today because I forgot but tomorrow I will get some good pics of it...

OK so mine did not turn out just like one of the many tutorials I found on the web--here is a good tute-- but I used differently qualities of organza and I really felt like the higher quality melted better and I know that I want none of these fabrics near my body and a heat source they melted so quickly! This is an after picture....

This is a before picture...or after being melted and before being put together as a flower...AND I did not cut them into flower shapes merely a circular shape because I wanted a poppy type look. This was one craft though my hubby could get into and he had a glint in his eye watching me hold it over the flames--playing with fire, burning things BOYS!--anyway he said if I cut him some more this weekend he will do a few more trials so I will be excited to see what he comes up with, he is actually very artistic and I love working with him!

Anyway this was a nice distraction but we are on some pretty tight deadlines this week as well as all the homeschooling still going on.....be inspired, stay creative!
