Progress



One of the things that I love the most about crafting, is to just go freestyle and try to make what I can visualise in my head. It's not always successful - many things end up in the bin..... but sometimes it actually works.

So when my girlfriend requests various ears and tails for the dress up box for christmas, I say "Sure, I can make that", when I really have no idea if I can or not. But, I've had the picture in my head for a little while now, and today it was time to give it a go..... just don't ask me what type of animal it's supposed to be ok!

They look like someone's going to have a lot of fun with them - great work!

Reminds me of a creature that belongs in the book where the wild things are.

Selina said...

They look fabulous Cam! Lots of fun going to be had with those!

Becky said...

I was thinking donkey too. Great work whatever it is :)

Kate said...

I'm sure the lucky recipient will have plenty of ideas for what type of animal it is. You are one clever crafter, I think it is wonderful!

Christina Lowry said...

I immediately thought big bad wolf!! They are great!

I would have loved to have a tail as a child. As a matter of fact, I still wish I had a tail! :)

I don't think it MATTERS what type of animal it is - someone is going to use their imagination and have a great time.

Jennie said...

I assumed it was a 'Where The Wild Things Are' costume!

Meagan @ecoMILF said...

oh yes definitely donkey... the ears could be a bunny's... the tail could be a dinosaur, a fat mouse, dogs, a cats. That's the beauty of it, the can make believe they're anything! xo m.

Cam I think that It is great that they are not any particular animal/creature - imagination is a dying art for children these days. Electronic games and TV do the thinking for many. Imaginative play rocks!

Sometimes it's all a bit of guesswork, but it all turns out in the end. And these look so adorable!

A nice reminder for me to try a bit of freestyle! Thanks.
