Not so much 'my creative space' today, so much as a 'snapshot' of some fervent crafting earlier on in the week! I should have been catching up on some other stuff that day, so today I'm paying for it and will have to be running around like a lunatic, getting my house in order, before my 'other half' completely disowns me!! It's a hard life being a crafter!
Anyhow, my 'notion' for making some simple soft toys with Morag Lloyds fabrics took a hold of me on Tuesday and I made some simple templates, then decided to add a hanging cord so that they could be used decoratively too.I quite like the way you get different snapshots of the images on each shape - a bit of a house here and a bit of a sheep there! (they are all about 5-6 inches in size)
I'm undecided about the results - I like the organic shapes of the 'bone' and the 'fish' (not sure that these are really baby themes!!), but the 'boat', I'm not sure about. It's a kind of 'paper-boat' shape but does it work? - I don't know. I wanted to make tactile shapes for a baby to hold, and thought the pattern would be good for visual stimulation, etc. What do you think?
I backed them with some yummy Harris Tweed, of course!
I might just 'sit on them' for a bit (at least they're out of my system for the moment!) - more creativity over at the lovely 'kootoyoo' blog.
