This past week I've been working on a few different projects at once. Yes, I'm guilty of starting way too many projects at once, but what crafter isn't?
I've actually been working on this squirrel for awhile now and am just starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The pattern is by Pixiekitten and super easy to follow, but it's definitely not a quick project. Adding fur to the tail is the most time consuming, but also the most rewarding. I'm so excited about how well it's coming out!
After working on the large dragon head for so long, I needed something that would lend me a little instant gratification. So I started on a smaller dragon with the same general puffy cheeked look in mind. What's really unique about what I'm doing with this one is that the horn at the top is actually made out of polymer clay, an idea I got from Kathleen of A Surprise Every Time. I think that in future mini-drags I'm going to make the horn a bit wider and less pointy at the top. My husband also gave me the idea of having a little lopsided tooth coming out from the mouth, which I'm definitely planning on adding as well. Now, obviously, these mini's are not ment for children. Not only do they have small pieces, but they also have sharp objects...so, the upside to this is I have a whole lot more freedom in decorating them. Lets see how gaudy I can make 'em ;)
More polymer clay play
So I don't get too burnt out on crocheting all the time, I decided to have a side project just for fun. My first attempt at making a figurine with clay is...have your guessed? Yup! Another dragon (have you caught on to my obsession with them yet?)! So far I think this little guy looks more like a baby Shrek though :P
