1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Scorpion Head Piece on: March 29, 2008 04:56:32 PM
I made this a few weeks ago for a friend of mine. We all go to the WDBX 91.1 Community Radio funraiser ball and this year's theme was the Zodiac. Miss Charlotte is a Scorpio and not at all crafty. I made this from my stash, cardstock, glitter, diamond glaze and pipe cleaners. My 7 year old helped design the tail.



I started this late and spent so much time on it, that I didn't have time to make an Aquarius piece for me. No matter, got to wear one of my vintage hats!





Don't have a photo of her wearing it. It was oh so hard to give it away, but she was more than pleased and it looked great on her!

My New Year's Resolution is a little different. I am going the whole year buying only resale. Thought being, there is enough stuff on the planet now for a person get by on, without making new stuff. Ok, the big exceptions are groceries and any emergency items I might need for home repair or auto. No, a wedge needle for my sewing machine is not a necessity. As much as I want one right now....

My first real challenge has been birthday gifts for the many children in the herd of families my daughter and I run with. I decided to make them all sock doggies. There were 5 birthdays in January alone! I had a big bag of polyfill and once I told people about the project, they started giving me socks.

This is the first time I've posted anything, sorry for the jumpie to: A few finshed dogs



One dog got gifted before getting his picture taken. The film canister is a stash 'barrel' that I give cash, movie money or small trinkets in. Here's a very pink one and some other angles of the doggies.


I found the directions in Martha Stewart kids magazine a few years ago. Here is a link to an online version. I pretty much am making them exactly as you find this tutorial, too many to make to experiment right now. The only thing that I am doing differently is sewing closed the face before attaching it to the body.

These are stupid easy to make, and I'm getting them done faster too. A month in, I have succeeded in avoiding my usual retail haunts and actually have saved some money as an added bonus! (plus, the kiddies love them)
