For some very silly christmas presents, I crocheted balls, stuffed them with rice, and later popcorn kernels, and painted faces on them with my 3d fabric paint. One was embroidered, but that took too much time, and the painted ones have alot more personality.
                   here's the bunch of 'em together:

                   and here are the individuals, with notes and explanations when needed(just wait and see)

              This one I decided looked like a pear, so I gave it eyes and lips and a stem and leaf.

              This is my embroidered one, originally supposed to be a turtle, however I apparently don't know what turtles look like...

              And here is what was supposed to be a sun with sunglasses. Unfortunately, the sunglasses looked like normal glasses. It reminded me of Harry Potter, so I gave it a lightning bolt scar which, shoot, I do not believe was added when this picture was taken. You can just imagine it there...

 And this my last post of 4 made in the last 10 minutes. Most of them are in the purses section. I tend to post everything at once. :b


I LOVE personal swaps! If you see something I made that you like, and have anything fun or interesting or silly, tell me.

killer!!  I've never even thought to use fabric paint~ which is weird cause i use fabric glue all the time on my ami!!!!!  fyi: just be careful when you use food items as a filler~ even the slightest moisture and they'll mold/mildew up like crazy!!  I made beanbags and used a rice/dry bean mix to fill them, and after like a few months we discovered a nasty 'mystery stink' and it was the beanbags!!!!
Oh, and the harry potter one is so cool!!!

make today a positive one!
this ish misseng

You can pretend your turtle is a cabbage!

I like the bird.  Makes me think of a Snidget.  But blue.
