Eeeek!

...

I started with some plastic eggs. The type you get inside a chocolate egg.



Found some little eyes in my craft box (they were on sale so I bought them then did nothing with as they were so little)



I popped a couple of holes here and thar with the aul cropadile... and some wee scissors.



Then I twisted some left over wool (I'll tell you what that was for some day) and ribbon my partner's sister brought me for christmas, added a small amount of left over paint (yay for shed junk) stuck on some random bits of felt and...

Presto!




Notice the little smudge...As an old friend used to say 'It all adds to the effect!!'

I made some bat poi!
(here is poi for who didn't know, good stuff!)

So yeah they'll basically be flying about at the end of my fingers.

Here is what I used:

Plastic eggs
Wool
Felt
Little plastic eyes
Left over paint
Ribbons
Sand (to give the little guys some weight!)

Tools:

Cropadile (to make neat holes)
Wee scissors
Old paint brush
Les mains

These are my favorite egg critters so far. I think I will have to make some to keep my ceiling goose company. Cheesy

Heh I fixed that link. Sorry about that. I posted it late last night in case I couldn't come online today but luckily here I am. ^^

Thanks a million for all the comments. Would have loved to use those coloured eggs but I just haven't seen many of those about here since I was a kid so I made do and painted some of those from easter as my partner had hidden lots of chocky eggs around my house! =)

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

Super cool!

And is it just me or does the eye-hole picture look like evil little grinning eggs?!

Come to think of it, the first pic looks like pacmen

Cheesy
