In Literature this term we're doing a book-study-kind-of-thing on the Hobbit. As part of this, our teacher is having us make papier-mâché characters from the book. It has to be papier-mâché, which blows. I ended up cheating on the arms, though, because it's not like you can really see them anyway and I was too lazy to figure something else out.

Without further ado... Gandalf:

P.S. This was my first go at making a hat and my first go at making anything with sleeves. AND IT GOT BOTH ON THE FIRST TRY, which pretty much boggled my mind because I was setting myself up for a huge let down. So that was nice :] Oh, and the staff was loosely based on a Harry Potter wand I saw on here some time ago.

Anywaaaaay, this isn't due until February first, so does anyone have any sggestions as to how I could improve him?

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.
