I'm going to try it again, I have some ideas on bindings. I am really excited about this project, it's so cool to have made something neat-o from nothing, basically scrap garbage. So cool.

It looks great, nice choice of fabrics and totally worth the bother.

When sewing shiny vinyl, I find using a teflon foot and tissue paper to be helpful. 

RovingAnarchist had the great suggestion to put tape over a regular machine foot for extra slip to stitch vinyl etc. I haven't tried it, I have a teflon foot, but it seems like it would work very well Wink.

You are so right, with a bell added and some fancy yarn scraps for the tail they could be quite spectacular. If I get started now I might have a pile of them by the next ornament or sts exchange Wink.

I have the least success with this sort of crafting out of everything I've ever tried. I am still hopefully I can make some things though, those gelli plates in the cold room still look good after all this time..

I just got a book from the library, Creative Cloth Explorations: Adventures in Fairy-Inspired Fiber Art by Patti Medaris Culea, that is really special. The faces she is fond of are not my exact cup of tea but every little bit of the rest I just love. I'd really like to try some fabric pages and especially the art fans in the book but first I need to find a source for tyvek and fantasy film here in Canada, any ideas? I'm not having a lot of luck with local craft shops...

This is the only online link I could find to a fairy fan, it's it beautiful?

There was another in the book with 3 blades, I'm thinking it would make such a great swap idea. Make 3 similar blades and send one to 2 partners, get 2 different ones in return.

Ok, that stuffy is too much. Just wow. I lurve their faces.
Pretty awesome pipecleaner version too, everything about it is so cool.

I also very much appreciate the mythology refresher, like so many of those stories they have lost meaning over time, been rewritten to adhere to the style of the times, the current political culture, etc. The true originals are often very different from what's floating around today. Hmm, reminds me of modern holy books...

Thanks CLM!  That one looks like a circle that was folded.   Yours was an incomplete circle, right?

It's a circle! You can make it a perfect circle for a half circle chicken or add increases for the shape that looks like a pie with a big piece taken out.
I don't know what to do with those chickens, I'm finding them irresistible to make but have nothing to do with them all!
