They are the perfect size to do while bingewatching something
and so to challenge myself
I chose to do the first few from the bead soup pile
Just to get started
My first spirit doll
for the bead journal project this year is also from the pile
with some opaque white seed beads to fill her out
This one was not
from the pile and was supposed to look like flames
but she turned out a hot mess instead
the next one is better and from the pile
I have a lot of purple seed beads!
I call her #9
Dottie is next
made from a broken pukka shell ankle bracelet
from a Hawaii trip and the last of the bugles
and the random seed beads in the pile
I also found another bead soup box
I wonder what will come from that?
this red one is all new beads from the box
she's a little lumpy but I think the lines are getting better
I am going to add some little gold bell dangles to her bottom
when she is backed and pinned
I just noticed I have to finish her head though
Then there are these two little embroidered guys
a bunny and fox for a later CQ project
I haven't decided where to put them yet but I am going to do more like this
They are fun little patches and will fit on anything as they are inchies too.
I sew them on felt with an initial outline in a daisychain then fill it in with satinstitch and stem stitch for a rougher texture
I'm Having so much fun with this!
