A DAY TO CREATE!
I began by taking off the boring non color buttons and adding black buttons...Then I cut a flower from several pieces of Daffy (sorry little duck) and added a bit of netting and loose stitching and a button. I stitched around the neck, sleeves and front and bottom with three randomish rows of black stitching...added the flower and then decided to tuck it in a bit by adding buttons on the front sides.....and one on the back for good measure...
After a few hours I came up with this end result...
Yellow Sweater Remake on a cloudy Saturday afternoon!
In case anyone out there was wondering...I haven't forgotten that I PROMISED to put some paper casts in my ETSY shop...I HAVEN'T forgotten!! What happened was THIS...I ran out of cotton linters...which is the stuff you make them out of...so I had to order more...(as there is NO STORE ANYWHERE IN TOWN that carries it!!) My package of linters FINALLY came today...BUT, I did have enough to make some thin leaves and hearts that would be appropriate for cards and/or scrap booking and/or wax collage or regular collage...:)...So, I was thinkin I might make two separate thicknesses...in case they were to be used for different things...:) Just wanted you to know I haven't been idle!!...I've spent my time exploring the BEST way to ship these delicate items so they would be safe and think I've come up with the safest way...now to make sure it is the MOST cost effective! HA...did anyone out there think it was as easy as makin stuff and mailin it?? HA...I did...but not anymore!! :)
I'm leaving you with this...DARE to IMAGINE that you can...and you WILL!!
HAPPY SATURDAY CREATING!!
