Named “Suzy Q,” this first image is of the cloche I designed especially for Alamo City Etsy Team’s silent action coming up to support breast cancer research. The hat is made from a sublime blend of the softest rayon, bamboo and acrylic fibers. Five different types of yarn are used in the making of this hat. After frogging it quite a few times, I’m pretty happy with the result. It’s perfect! I just finished it’s certificate of authenticity tag and will be shipping this tomorrow morning!
The following images are a couple cute puppet critters I made for Spirit Jumps. Making puppets like this came about thanks to school homework projects my kids have had over the years. Where they have been assigned a writing project involving writing a play, making props and of course, making their puppets – then later performing it for the younger grades. Pretty cool and creative, but when it gets assigned more than once, you start figuring out new ways to do it. And being a yarnie, well – of course I’m going to use my yarn! Anyway…. My kids and I have had a lot of fun perfecting this project.
A collaborative work.
