I love seeing how things progress over time - practice is everything.


So, here's the wonderful creature, that is the Cobalt Blue Tarantula -they look really cool and I love the idea, that blue spiders actually exist in nature.
 I've made 3 (the first  spider is missing a pair of short front legs, even Cheesy)








Hope you like it! Wink

Thanks so much! <3 Cheesy

I would freak out, if I actually would see a real one. I love these fuzzy little guys, the real tarantulas - their photos and all, but I need my distance Cheesy

Well then it is all very well and good that you make felted ones to keep the baddies away Wink I have a friend that would probably kill me if I showed up with a project like this at a craft meetup Tongue I'd love to see some more pictures that show off the detail of your most recent creation!

Now I'm wondering what the collective noun should be. A scream of spiders?
Very nifty!
