I have been non-crafty lately with some health issues ailing me. However, last night this "little" guy paid me a visit.
When he took flight, it looked like a parakeet flying around the house. It was BEAUTIFUL. Even my kids were in awe of a moth so beautiful. I safely placed him outside where he could fly away (or continue to ram himself into my porch light).
This morning I finished my three bags I have been working on from the "Miranda" pattern. They look crooked in the pics, but they really aren't. I guess I have a lot to learn about photo shooting.
#1 for a co-worker
#2 for my MIL...no pic, but trust me it was cute. A Dachsund pattern in blue red and brown.
#3 for a co-worker. It reminded me so much of a flower basket that I had to make a flower pin for the front. It is made from two felted wool sweaters in the "bottle cap" style.
close-up of flower and the pin sewn on the back. Man my pics are blurry!
It is my first felt project. My first use of embroidery floss. And my first time seeing a moth the size of a small bird!
The flower bas is bottle cap with fiberfill and felted wool. The "rose" is made of a cream colored mohair/wool felted sweater. I mad a bud for the center and filled around with petals.
C&C appreciated. Thanks
