I hear ya! I recently started dabbling with clay myself using makeshift tools - I didn't want to spend money on more craft stuff without knowing whether I'd be any good at it. I'm happy with my progress so far though (I've been reading some online tutorials for caning) so I think I might invest in a pasta machine soon in the hopes of making things easier for myself. I think Herber is adorable btw, well done!
I'm not a knitter but I really love this! Thanks for the link to the bigger pictures too, that helped a lot. I think the heart and bracelet are amazing too, but I have no clue how you did them. Do you have a tutorial for those 'stitches' as well?
I literally squee'd when I saw these! I love them, and like the other posters said - the tutorial makes it look easy! Thank you for that! I'll definitely have to try to make some (and try not to put my eye out).
