I’ve been working on the next set of ornaments over the past few days. These are my own design, there are 24 of these in two designs. I’m only just this far, but feel okay with this. I know what I need to do on them and it’s like an assembly line to work on them, so it won’t be too stressful, so I’ve convinced myself to think.
The pictures are kind of strange but what I’ve done is make all the bodies and laid them out on the six different colours of hairy fabric that I’m using for their hair, trying to match the fabric colours to the colours of hairy fabric. Some colours just don’t work with others, but I have grey, plum, black, white, ivory, and milk chocolate brown. I did a fabric swap with a friend in the spring, so part of what she sent me, is the purple and the brown with gold roses.
The next step will be to make a head and make sure it’s the right proportions for the body, and once I know that, it’s off and running to get them together.
My cat was walking around with pretty sparkly feet the last couple of days, kind of hard to take given he’s a boy, he wasn’t as thrilled as me ;o~. There is just no way to contain the glitter, it just goes where it wants to. Every fabric except the burgundy, has flying glitter, but who can resist walking around with sparkles all over your face, clothes, pets and husband.
It makes a statement for sure. And when you leave home to run errands, you cause people to really look at you. They see a wayward sparkle on your face and don’t know how to tell you… That always amuses me..;o)
Back soon with more progress pictures.
