...and here's the other! Don't you love the little pigtails?!
Both were really quick, easy, and lots of fun to make, with just small amounts of yarn, some fiberfill, and a couple of good-sized wiggle eyes. You can find a quick how-to HERE, at Luna's place, My Crochet-Mis Tejidos.
One will sit on my desk, and the other will be shipped directly to one of my very best friends, who LOVES to collect owls. I know this will be a really nice surprise for her, when it gets there!.. Well, that's if she's not reading this post of course! (I've also got a package on it's way to my good friend Doris, over at Crocheting in Georgia! We were swap partners for an exchange of flower seeds! She should get that real soon!)
Another small project I worked on one night was a couple of fabric flowers! I could see where these might be almost addicting to make. They really are so easy to put together!.. But my one frustration was not having a strong enough thread... I've got to get more, and in at least another color or two... I like how this one looks on my mini album, based on The Wizard of Oz... (which I HOPE to show sometime soon! I'm going to try to better understand my camera, probably over the weekend.)
Love the shade of green I had for this flower.. So pretty!.. If you'd like to see how to make these flowers, HERE'S where a young man will teach you how it's done.. If I'm not mistaken, I believe he's only about 15 years old, but he's a definitely a rising star in the field of scrapbooking!! You can find his blog HERE.
Now, can you guess which album this next flower will be for?
Oh, yes!... Very soon, I will be starting my next mini-scrapbook movie album, based on the Twilight saga, and I can't wait! I'm having so much fun with these, that down the road I have plans for making more albums based on Gone With The Wind, and Harry Potter too!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
