Title: A mushroom house for a snail
Post by: onegroovyday on March 02, 2010 04:24:38 AM
here is my TINY mushroom house..... I have done a couple of bigger ones (6" or so).....I was working on a cottage when I decided to do a mushroom in the garden, as it started coming together this challenge was announced, so I made it a bit more detailed ......and here it is.....

it was made out of reclaimed sweaters, a bit of emboidery floss and some seed beads... everything was hand sewn together.....please look close at:  the inchworms and snails antaneeeeee, the door knob, the plants at the end of the walkway, there is a lot of little detail.... it was fun trying to figure out how to do it all so small




so that you can se how small it actually is.....


here is the snail....before he was put in the garden


here it is by the cottage.....it just slips in.... I took a picture with the snail on the stairs.... I think he is really cute... I may have to make more to add around the other parts of the garden.....The cottage isnt totally done, but I will post it when it is......

this is my entry.............


thanks for looking...... ;D

well actually.........while I was working on it my dog sniffed the tray I had everything on .. and, yeah, well, the first window, door and some of the beads got lost in the carpet..... so not really "inhaled".....but......
