This week Ive been busy making items from the mystery box ...so I cannot show you those. I made this little leather chair from an old handbag I picked up for 50c and I have enough leather left to make a footstool to match. I wanted the chair to look loved and lived in ,so I roughed up some of the edges of the leather with sandpaper to attemp to age it and Im liking the results.
Im also still trying to make eyes that look more realistic and I think Im getting somewhere,ok they are a bit rough but this was my first attempt at this method and I seem to have a lot of bubbles in the irises but they are around 2mm size and I know I can improve on them.I like them a lot better than the prevoius eyes I made from canes.
My sis in law reminded me that christmas is comming so I thought Id better think about in in a mini way lol .I bought these sof-twists at big w ...they are like very fluffy chenille sticks/pipe cleaners I love the deep green of them and as you can see , all Im doing is cutting them shorter twisting them together in bunches and glueing them on top of one another . I think it will eventually make a xmas tree , I will trim the finally shape when I decide its tall enough . I hope everyone had a great week :)
