My Creative Process (Part 1)

So I started a new project last night, and thought I'd show you my work as I go through it. Good idea, right? Of course pictures are included!

The idea is to make a small felt ornament.

So, first I start with a drawing or outline.
1

I cut out the outline and use it to cut my felt shapes.
2

Take a little sip of wine. In a juice glass even. I'm classy.
3

And watch some cute guy on TV


OK back to my ornament. Now I sew it all together.

HMMMMMM. Upon consideration, I have decided that it looks like a fish. Must have been the wine. Into the trash it goes! I'll have to start over again tomorrow :-)

Lesson 1: When I craft, most of my stuff turns out fugly.




But hey, I did manage to get these painted and assembled, so all was not lost. :-D
