I started by shaping the head, I find that this helps with the sizing for the rest of the figure. I used two black seed beads as the eyes.
I then make a body and attach the arms and legs.
My next clever moment is a garlic press, it makes great hair!
As a weekend goes it was very busy, but it was fun. The street party was a great success, people are still talking about it and a couple of photos from the day even made it into the Gazette. Ella's party went very well, all the little party goers went home happy and my darling seven year old is beaming.
So what am I up to now that I have all this time on my hands, well I have gone back to boot camp, I am hoping that in just over a month I will look fabulous for our ten year wedding anniversary. Let's Scrap are celebrating National Scrapbooking Day, I have done a challenge for them, which is all very exciting and will put in my next blog. I also need to do a serious amount of scrapbooking layouts, as I only managed four last month, which is terrible.
Oh well, I am off to have some lunch, if nothing else boot camp makes me hungary.
