Jitterbug Perfume is my favorite book too!! I've read it at least 25 times..

I love the capelet and I want to steal the idea.   I think the french knots would be beautiful.  I like the bracelet idea too.

What about a little knit scarf in green yarn (matching the beet leaves) with yellow "pollen poofs" and jasmine flowers and bees.. might be cute..

Excellent Challenge! This really inspired me. 
I really enjoy early Cake's beat style poetry, it sets my imagination on fire! One of my favorites - Mr. Mastodon Farm, from Cake's first album - Motorcade of Generosity.

"Mr. Mastodon Farm"

Birds fall from the window ledge above mine.
Then they flap their wings at the last second.

You see birds fall from the window ledge above mine.
Then they flap their wings at the last second.
I can see their dead weight
Just dropping like stones
or small loaves of bread
Past my window all the time.
But unless I get up,
Walk across the room
And peer down below,
I don't see their last second curves
Toward a horizontal flight.
All these birds just falling from the ledge like stones.

Now due to a construct in my mind
That makes their falling and their flight
Symbolic of my entire existence,
It becomes important for me
To get up and see
Their last second curves toward flight.
It's almost as if my life will fall
Unless I see their ascent.

Mr. Mastodon Farm,
Mr. Mastodon Farm,
Cuts swatches out of all material.
(for the rest of the lyrics: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/cake/mrmastodonfarm.html )

I present my interpretation....  SMALL LOAVES OF BREAD falling past my window all the time.,,,

I saw this challenge and had to do it!  I took some muslin I had and fiberfil, and sewed a little loaf of bread with plushy wings.  It's got a cut up wire hangar in holding the wings up and a Macguyver style middle including tape and matchboxes to hold the wings up...  here's some more action photos in our backyard! (Yes.. I live in AZ.. my orange tree is blooming and it smells WONDERFUL!

You can LISTEN to part of the song here!

Thanks! My favorite is the odd, slightly rabid pink eye. I think it's funny.
20  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Ipod Owl on: February 03, 2009 05:34:36 PM
Inspired by moxie_d https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=206863.0

I present the IPOD Owl! This one fits the 30gig Ipod "classic". I streamlined it a bit so it's only 2 flaps and it's about the size of an adult hand.   Because it's the older Ipod the headphone jack is on the top you can plug it into the top of his head. 

Thanks Moxie_D!
