This is an old piece from May, 2009. I had never taken a decent picture of it, and I don’t think I blogged about it, so I thought it was time.
This is my favorite piece. I was supposed to sell it, but you can see that never happened. Someday I may give it away, but not today.
The base is felted in swirls for more texture. Easier to see in person, but I did my best to get a photo. I’m not entirely sure, but I think this may be from a large bag of alpaca I still have a ton of. The green background is a thrift store sweater. The frame came from a garage sale.
I’m overly fond of that sparkly thread you see lining things. I use it a ton, and have it in several colors. Because, you know, sparkly!
We all have that bead or button or whatever that was too cool to leave in the store, but at the time, you had no idea what you were going to do with it. These buttons, I’m pretty sure, came from Knitt’n Kitten.
After I finished this one, I naturally started another that I haven’t finished. But I will. I love this too much to only do it once.
