Today on my desk is a UFO from last summer that I couldn't seem to get really inspired about. It was for a challenge at Cloth Doll Artistry called Under The Sea. We all used the same free pattern from Kat Lees for a mermaid and we were to make a vignette. She isn't very big......about 8 inches.
Obviously I didn't finish her:)
I wanted to make a small wall hanging as I had some fabric that kinda looked like the ocean.....I think I got hung up on the arms....LOL I don't really like them because they seem too heavy for the small torso and they are at an odd angle for a flat piece. I'm going to make new arms.
She also doesn't have any hair yet......I tried out a tassel to see what it looked like. Not bad. So she is temporarily hairless and armless. I have some nice embellishments to make seaweed and stuff and I think I need a few fish too. I'm going to finish her this week.
If you'd like to make a mermaid for yourself too you can find the pattern here.
Also, on my desk are three books about card making......yes....card making:) I finally used up all the points from gift cards I had been given for Christmas and my birthday....
I borrowed the pics from Amazon because when I took pictures all I was getting was shiny blobs because of the overhead lights glaring off the covers.
I really like this iris folded example.....a little robin....cute:)
Well that's all from me for this Wednesday. For more desks go here....and take a look:) or here for WIP #21.......:)
