So about a little less than a year ago, my friends were in the production of Seussical at our high school. So instead of giving them the standard flowers I made them all presents themed around their characters, however this was way before I found Craftster, and so I did not take pictures, a bad habit I used to have. Anyway my friend who played Horton got a Horton keychain. However when I made him I dropped him and well his ear fell off, so I super glued it back on and my mom assured me that he looked fine, despite my protest. I gave it to him anyway and told him to be really careful with it. Less than a week later he tells me Horton broke three times. I asked him what he did to the poor thing, he claims nothing, but I know better.
So to make a very long story a little shorter, I promised him I would fix it, because I had never had any of my pieces break. So I get the key chain back in three pieces, and Horton is beyond repair, he had cauliflower ear, the poor thing had so much super glue on where his ear used to be. So today, about six months later I finally redid Horton. Now I know he doesn't look a lot like Horton, his face got distorted, but he is an elephant and he has the eyes.
Here are several views of the key chain:
And I also made a little letter beaded "S" with Seussical O Nine spelt on it. Two reasons it is an "S"- his name is Seth and Seuss.
And a picture of how the first Horton looked after I got him back.
This first one definitely looked more like Horton, but I'm happy with this one too, as do I hope the recipient is. I also hope that this one doesn't come back in pieces. But his trunk is significantly longer than the first and that worries me.
Comments and criticism are appreciated.
