I tore apart these too in preparation but inspiration hasn't hit me yet with these. Itt will, itt will.
We also had these laying around. Just simple green fruit basket containers from the Summer months.
Completely flying by the seat of our pants and having absolutely no idea what we were making we started cutting the fabrics into strips.
Then we just started tying the strips into the little individual 'ribs' of the green baskets. My girls are done with school for the semester so they were helping and we just found ourselves chatting and tying. Not really paying any attention to the actual crafting. It's all in the process and not really the product sometimes and I would not have traded that time with my girls for the world. Cara mia!
In the end we produced 3 um uh monster poofy baskets of tyed fabric strips (M.P.B.T.F.S. for short) ...no matter what angle I took pictures of them we still had not a clue what to do with them or even what they were, not even standing on our heads helped the perspective. BUT as soon as my hub came home he said "Who went out and bought bird toys?" so yea my girls aren't ready to give theirs up yet but I am sure our resident Evil lovebird and her parakeet sidekick will love chewing mine to shreds.
What will you create today? Don't forget to stop and view the colors, smell the roses, watch the snow falling (yes it has been falling again in Albuquerque wonders never cease do they?)
