I'll have to post pictures (after Christmas) but I'm kinda going crazy! I've got feathers and ribbon and beads and I'm drawing on mine too. @_@

I'm also gluing a wire to it to make Christmas tree branch ornaments. ^_^

I have made 2 already . . . waiting until the Christmas money bonus so that I can get flocking and stuff. I love awesome recycling crafts! Thanks Teag!

My 7-year-old daughter saw this post and was naming the owls and then said "that is really cool!"

I heartily agree.

I am to the drying stage before the painting part. Yay!

Oh and I figured out how to make it so that the bottom is open (in case anyone wants to do what I did). I traced around the bottom of the main hat on the brim piece and then poked a hole in the brim piece at the center. Then carefully I cut out pie wedges to almost where my circle was. Then I put glue on the inside of the hat and held the wedges there until they stuck. Oh and I did this before I put the top on the hat, so that I could hold the main hat part on the brim tightly so it all lined up.

Oh and then I covered the pie wedges on the inside with a small strip of paper and covered that with what would have been paper towels, but I don't have any so I pulled apart some 2-ply toilet paper. Works just as well.  ^_^ I think I might try this when I have money later, and put some velvet ribbon or something similar in the inside, with a small scrap of colored silk on the top - y'know, for authenticity. ^_^

My husband is going to think I am downright crazy for making these hats. They're so cute though! (And I'm broke so crafting for free and reusing stuff is just awesome.)

Thanks again for such a delightful craft! I love learning new things.

This is just too cute! Now I just need to get some paint . . .

And if we don't have Tacky Glue (I'm still slowly gathering my crafting supplies) will Elmer's work as well?

I want to try this with maybe felt and floss. I don't have the patience for punching. But it is SO cute! I might have to make it for next year's Dia de los Muertos. My daughter and I are 'cat people'.  Or a turkey one for Turkey Day. Just to be silly. ^_^

My husband thought that it was your hair also, until I made the picture bigger for him. Then he was all "Whoa, that's pretty spiffy!" And he's not a crafty person!

I think that using this method might be possible to create interesting works of art - I'm thinking Christmas ornaments, armature for beaded objects, possibly even a fake bonsai tree. I have a lot of thread and other stuff just lying around. It would be nice to do something pretty with it.

Oooh! Earrings! Pendants!

Well I'm going to have to use this idea. ^_^ Thanks so much for being willing to share!

I love it when people think off the beaten path. It is SO much more of an interesting road.

Now this is the kind of head mount that I would be willing to put up on my wall. I can't stop giggling at the expression. He looks like, "Wait . . . what just happened?"  I love it!
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: Knit or Crochet the Weather--based on Leafcutter Designs Sky Scarf concept on: December 08, 2012 04:22:04 PM
This is such a novel concept! It doesn't have to be a sky either. I'm thinking that you could do the ground, or a tree, or what color of shirt you wore that day (although that would be a lot of yarn, unless you're like me and you tend to wear the same set of colors).

I like the fact that this is an art project to help become aware of my surroundings. I get so tunnel-visioned sometimes. I might even turn this into a modern art hoop project. ^_^ With beads. Or cross stitch.

Or maybe I"ll make a blanket.

OH the possibilities!
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Sweaters I've made in the last few weeks for my daughter on: December 02, 2012 06:07:17 PM
Let me preface this with - Those are REALLY cute!

And then I will reveal my Geek Cred badge - when I saw the thumbnail pic that led me here I thought, "Wesley Crusher sweater!" I am fairly certain they made him wear a sweater with rainbow-ish stripes.

However, when I looked at the real pic I just thought that the sweaters were beautiful, and how much I missed my amazing grandmother who could knit and crochet up a storm.  I think you're talented.
