For the bird swap I made this big pink flamingo. Each part of the bird is two layers of Teesha Moore style patches in various pink fabrics, and then I sewed the two layers together. The legs are tshirt pieces braided together. Overall the flamingo has some good cuddly substance made up of the two layers of quilted pieces. It took a while but I was happy with the result, scrappy and fun.
I finally took a fused glass class recently and loved it. One of my projects was this robot. I love robots. I'm really happy with it. The instructor's idea to use clear glass on the grey for the eyes and chest panel worked out great. I can't wait to do more projects. And try slumping.
These are my first TM squares, and I made the into a little kitchen wallhanging for a friend. I am addicted, love these, though I wonder if she will or if it just looks like a five year old made it lol.
for the altered spool swap I found these tiny wooden spools, so I stacked two to make a tree stump, added a little felted bark, made a little felted owl for the top, used some glass bead eyes I had, and then felted a rock for a base.
In celebration of WorldPride coming to Toronto this year, the Toronto Dyke March organizers have added a project for women to gather and craft together, or send in contributions, for a crafty banner. All additions welcome! Think 5x5 squares in crochet, knit, embroidery, cross stitch, or extra shapes. If you're in Toronto come to a meet up each Wednesday at the Yorkville Library 6-8. If you're not, check it out and mail in something to add! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CraftActionTO/
