Felix and I saw a link to Canon paper crafts (ok, I saw it and showed it to him!), and we just HAD to make this guy:
Of course, a three year old isn't much help when it comes to cutting/folding/gluing small pieces of paper, so we had to print off the vampire mask to entertain him while I did the hard work. Also, special thanks to Chainsaw for making dinner while I did this. You know you have a good guy when you out of the blue ask him to make dinner so you can make a paper skeleton, and he says yes.
Felix has dubbed him a "zombie skeleton," and we have named him Rupert.
I also decided to get busy with my Enchino yesterday afternoon. Say hello to my new purse, if you please.
I didn't want to use a big piece of it, but I did want a lion for sure! This ended up being a big mix of materials. I used linen, cotton, buttons from my collection, and magic, of course. While making this I realized that I've never really sat down and made something knowing it was for me. Everything that's MINE that I've made is something I randomly decided to keep.
The back has some big slip pockets.
Pardon my not yet disappeared disappearing marker line.
Felix shows here that it also makes a pretty cool beard. Not sure if I'd want a lion in my beard, but I won't be using it as a beard personally.
Next giveaway business time.
I was luckily enough to go to the Thrashing Bee in Sturgis, SD last summer. They have a super old steam tractor parade, which Felix liked. They had some flea market type areas, where I scored a couple hand made aprons. I'm assuming they're vintage, but I'm no pro. I can tell for sure that they were hand made and that someone put a ton of work into them.
I love full aprons on account of I'm a messy cooker/baker, so I thought I'd pass this lovely half apron onto one of you!
Check out this chicken scratch (that's what this is called, right?):
Somebody put a lot of love into this apron for sure!
