Pay It Forward

This is one of my pay it forward 2011 trades- with Alex Luko [link]

I read this blog [link] a friend of mine wrote about paper clay and I decided to try it for myself. I thought this was the perfect opportunity.His core is made of tin foil and his legs have wire supports. There is also a tiny magnet in his foot. The paper clay is very light and I liked that it was easy to sand. 

I enjoyed working on this guy so I might do some more sculptures in the future!

Wool Felt

I ordered some wool felt back in August and have been experimenting with it in-between lager projects.
I made a wolf pin based on my run red design.
Mouse/rat pouch is not quite finished, I'm still working on the blanket stitch around the edge.
