Following my last couple of forays into the world of amugurami (here and here) and the relative interest in it on my Facebook page I had an idea. One that would hopefully be popular and be closer to my jewellery……I would make mini amugurami! Easy – quick, cheap and perfect for key rings etc. In theory!
In actual fact it took me AT LEAST twice as long if not more to make this:
In addition it was fiddly and the finishing off (weaving in all the ends etc) a nightmare. He is however very popular with my children so I was correct about one aspect – they would be popular. It is not, however an avenue I shall be exploring any more. I have had a go, learnt my lesson and now move on! (For the record I partly blame Fiddly Fingers as she made a lovely mini teddy and made it look gorgeous. No moaning on her post so either I am a wimp or I am rubbish at it!)
As always I am linking up with Handmade Monday over at Handmade Harbour. I know that I always suggest that you come and have a look too but I wanted to underline this fact by telling you that so many of the people who take part are published in magazines, books participating as ‘headline acts ‘ at fairs etc. It is more like mixing with royalty than catching up on blogs. It is really lovely when ‘someone you know’ pops up in something you are reading. It really feels really special, as well of course a great honour as you have been learning from them for a while before they have shared their knowledge to a wider and different audience. If you are one of those people who are reading this, you know who you are, I would like to say thank you for sharing a bit of your journey with me 🙂
I hope that you all have a great week and that spring will stay for a little bit longer this time around. 🙂
