Lots of cute things are being posted in the swap pool! Make sure you check it out and don't forget to upload your own contributions! My little sister is participating too and she gave me her submissions at her party. I need to remember to photograph them at some point and stick them in the pool. In the mean time, here is a look at what I'm working on!
All my little people are lined up and ready for hair and makeup. Then, it's on to wardrobe!
My first idea was to paint on the bodies. But I quickly learned that I'm not good enough at painting for my apparently high standards. So, this little lady became prototype number 1. I do like her on the clothes pin though. I think I may cover the top with white glitter to emulate snow. I may put a bit on her hat too!
I then decided to glue fabric onto the body, which I really like, even if it is a bit fiddly. And I thought that I would pop holes in the acorn caps and then thread floss through to hang them. But it was really hard to get the hole in the cap with out breaking the whole thing and don't get me started on the mess threading the floss through became!
So, I think they will end up being a mix of the two designs. Cloth bodies and clothes pin bases. I think it sounds like a winner!
