I am really excited about this little fella! I drew out the design last weekend but had to wait for the needle to arrive in the mail so I was chomping at the bit by the time it got here!
I find this so relaxing and fun and found a use for some old jewelery beads that I had rusted and saved. After that it was just a matter of getting the little wood base and drilling a hole, adding the dowel, painting and aging.
I had been given some really old thread which was perfect for sewing the beads on. Then I soaked it in tea, dried and stuffed it and added the base.
I am working on another original design featuring a crow!
This could be like eating peanuts, uh oh!
