i have an even better idea i've seen on here but let me find the link and i'll get back to you, it might take a second to do some searching!

update: hmmmm ok well i couldn't locate it myself so i asked about it in the where is that thread thread. but from what i remember is it was basically a womans shape but very curvacious. you could work in the round the entire time and then it would end in a point. and it doesn't have arms or anything just a basic head and body shape. which send out did you want to put it in, 1, 2, or 3?? as soon as i can find it if i do, i'll post it on here.

ok so i found out that she's called venus of willendorf. i've seen her a bit skinnier though, i actually have a charm that i could take a pic of to let you see what i mean...anyways basically crochet in the round then decrease at her neck, increase again somehow for her boobs, then decrease for an hr shaped figured waist, then increase again to widen her hips and then decrease gradually so her feet end at a point. am i making any sense here?? maybe its just late so therefore i'm talking gibberish. let me know if you don't understand what i mean...


http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=224019.0 here we go, they found her for me. anyways what you could do is crochet the basic shape and leave the arms off. thats how i've seen them done a lot. and if you want to make it small you could do thread crochet and then make it into a necklace or keychain. maybe do some decorative embroidery on it like a swirl on the tummy since its an fertility goddess-i've seen them like that b/f in bead shops. anyways just some idesa. i'll shut up now since this is a freaking novel!

i have no idea what package i want to put it in. its going to be one of the small items i think. lol

and thank you!! i want to go get some thread and make her tmw!! i really appreciate that link you gave me. that would work perfect actually.. obviously in crochet and not beaded. but yay thank you so much!!!!  Grin
