I wanted to show you my new purse I bought from Sweetpea. I think it's gorgeous and it's a perfect size.

Well, I did finish it in time, and I wore it to last night's closing party.

 

This is the original costume MonsterMovie5.jpg

(The episode is filmed in black and white as it's a tribute to the Universal horror movies)

 

This is my version -

And in colour -

Lo! the crapping bird!

not a great photo, (a bit too side-on) but....

 

take one plastic bottle, masking tape, half a plastic straw, a length of string, one paper plate, a few plain white stickers, pva glue, newspaper, black acrylic paint, yellow and orange felt tips. use craft knife, scissors and chunky paint brush. assemble to taste.

(remember both of these models were in need of 'tweaking', and the patterns weren't quite right when these were made!)

(Plus they will be all decorated and coloured when they are made up properly!)

 

the patterns:

My latest "make".

I really like the cute owl cushions that are popping up in the gift shops in town at the moment so I decided I would have a go at making my own -
