Finally got around to a sale on tapestry fabrics. At 50% off, a quarter yard of lots of styles was really reasonable. So I started making these and couldn't stop. I have more cut out, but haven't stuffed them yet. I put them in my shop but I never have luck selling things! I end up giving everything away anyway.  Grin
Hope the links work for the photos.

Oh, I am just so taken with these!  I'm not sure why, but they push all my happy crafty buttons.  They aren't my usual taste, but I'm quite drawn to them.  Good work!

WOW WOWZA I absolutely LOVE these!!!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Thanks you guys! I'd make these all day, but I got nowhere to put em'! They are fun though.

The mushrooms are about 6 inches tall and the roses are about that wide. There's a description in my shop. But no one these days has money for strange little things. LOL

Maybe since gas prices have gone down, we can all afford to redecorate with each others' stuff!

The shop is just a lark for me anyway. I'm not really in business so much as I just like to make weird things...

Well, I love them.  Keep up the good work.  I have the same problem with some of the crafts I make.  I go to craft shows and spend a small fortune to rent the space, just to have no one buy anything.  I get my feelings hurt because other people who have dorky things sell like crazy.  I've never figured that out.  My friend says she sells better at farmer's markets and places like that and it's cheaper to rent the spaces.  I might try that venue one day.

I love the flowers.  The textures you used are really great.  I think some of them would be wonderful on a smaller scale as a brooch. Smiley
