So my computer went down today... I'm typing this on my partner's iMac. Whether it was good or bad, I'll find out tomorrow at the Genius Bar, but regardless I learned how addicted I am to my computer by not having one... I swear I'm in withdrawals!
Anyway, since I had all this time on my hands, I decided to put it to good use. I made a prototype handbag inspired by Little Red... I plan on producing a couple more, but I have to find more baskets first--I stole our lint basket from the dryer to make this one! Given a choice, I may find some really cool baskets to play with, but for right now this one worked.
I took some scraps I had left over (I have a lot of those, so I'm sure I can make more) and dove into this little ditty... Using the same methods that I used to make the vest and hood, I cranked out this number pretty quickly, but it still took me all day. I'm pretty proud of it--it has a brown satin lining, and a little coin purse made in the shape of a wolf's ear! I even had time to shape a wolf tooth out of polymer clay, bake it, and attach it to the zip!
I have to plan how many I can make, but I think this is definitely one of a kind... For those girls that really like their fairy tales... hehe... : )
