First and foremost you must, must, must go and see Wendy's Handmade Monday - http://www.1stuniquegifts.co.uk/blog/. Check out what what makes people have being doing this fine week!!! I love, so should you ;)
Going back a post or two I featured some picture frames that were being protected by M.I.L.F.'s (just for those of you that never read the post, that isn't rude - Monsters I'd Love to Fluff). I gave two away and created a further two for myself. Just because I can :) But it got me to thinking that actually they are fun, cute and easy to make. So lets expand...
So I am currently in the process of creating a number of little fella's. These each have a name and all look a little different from each other. When I say a little different think of the late eighties, early nineties Troll phenomenon. They all had strange pointy hair, bug like faces that were reasonably cute and came in different sizes. But in all honesty the only difference was the costume (the rabbit was my fav).
So I have started on the keyring size. I am aiming for a total of 6 little critters. So far I have completed 3 very simple designs, but they are cute, even if I do say so myself. My task for Tuesday is to complete a pattern for a free standing larger 8 to 10" version. These will be more detailed and have different names... You get the idea.
So I would like you all to meet (some) of the Gang:
Here's 'Lost' - don't let the cute button eyes device you, he lost that horn in a fight. The dog came of worse and the homework survived to see the teachers desk.
This is 'Shush'. He's the kinda guy the rushes off to hide in the coat pocket - the one with the hole in it, and usually takes the house keys with him. And since his maker ended up sewing his mouth shut (by accident of course) you can get into all kinds of mischief and he'll help out. After all it's not like he's gonna tell anyone!
Finally, this is 'I-c-all' (as in eye see all). She the perfect spying companion. Deception is the name of this ones game. Just because she wears those flowers, doesn't mean she won't grass you up if you've been naughty!
Should get the others finished in the next day or two. And in the process I might get over the concussion that had led me to believe these little guys actually have personalities ;)
Off to blog hop now and see what other talented people have been up to.
