Oh, those are great Christine!! Very cute, what did you use to mold the feathers and legs, clay/femo? And are the flowers painted on? Almost looks like stamps, they are so perfect!
Great discussion, you have opened up a can for us crafters! I love show and tell!!!
Ok, here's one from a few years back. I made a bunch of x-mas decorations, using a glass block from Home Depot, and hubby drilled a hole where I could insert a string of lights. Then I decorated the outside with ribbon and such. There were a big hit at work and people tell me year after year "I still have your Xmas decoration and it's so pretty." Gives me the warm fuzzies. :o)
The picture is from my old cell phone so it's really small.
Very nice sculptures! I see that you enjoy working on a miniature scale, like I do on a lot of my creations. Your rose petals look so nice and delicate. Are you planning on painting your sculptures? What type of modeling compound do you use to make them?
Thanks for sharing your work! :)
Terrible I cannot get a picture in here!!! So hey you can see my last two finished projects on my blog.. Knitting Without Needles

I enjoy sewing, but I'm definitely a beginner. My favorite thing about it is that you can find something too big/small/ugly at a second hand store, use your imagination, and turn it into something that's attractive and fits! I have an awful time finding things that fit me right, and making/altering my own clothes has really helped me out in that department.
The first picture is a dress made from an XL t-shirt. I made it using a tutorial on Craftster.org. I'd be happy to find the link to it, if anyone is interested in making one themselves.
The second dress was made using a f.r.e.e.! pattern from The Selfish Seamstress (check out her blog if you haven't already). It's called the "Coffee Date" dress. Really easy to make...except for the zipper. I. Hate. Sewing. Zippers.
In the third picture is a peasant shirt I made for my daughter out of a thrifted, vintage pillowcase. She wore it when we met Rhett and Link in NC. :)
