Keeping up with the whole attempt at maintaining my credibility, I thought I would share a fun little craft project with y'all! (Even though it's a rerun. Again. You can tell because we have the lousy photos. I posted this the first time before I got the real camera.)
I like to call this Little Punkin'.
(Be aware that you will have to use a needle with a large eye if using either of these threads.)
Then you use a running stitch around the edge of the circle (I used green thread here so you could easily see it in the photograph). The running stitch is just like that in-and-out thing. If you are not sure, e-mail me. Or look it up on the internet. Have you heard of the internet? It's awesome.
Then, you take a little bit of tissue paper and crinkle it. If you do not have any tissue paper, then this is the PERFECT time to buy a pair of shoes and use that paper in the shoebox.
Put the stick into the tissue, and pull the string tight. This is a side view because I can't figure out how to rotate the photo. Just tip your computer to the side. (Be careful...your computer might be heavy. Consider it your workout for the day.)
Here is the little punkin' on my dining room table. I have plans to make a few of these and put them under my cloche. They are easy and peasy, so I know you can do it! Have fun!
