In true little-project-after-big-project fashion (see also: felt box) I tried to dive right in to the next thing on my list yesterday, really I did. Only, I've been picking up bags of clothespins & pipecleaners here & there for a while now, & I've been sort of half-thinking about making little personalized clothespin dolls for party favors (all of my plans for my daughter's party hinge on my ability to talk her into the fairy tea party concept, an idea that I love because 1. clearly, it would be sparkly, 2. I could make tiny food, & 3. it's not My Little Pony/Barbie/Dora/Princess/etc), & so yesterday I thought maybe, while I was gearing up to start doing some actual work, I would just see about a clothespin doll for a little minute.
The blonde is my daughter (the skirt gives it away), the brown is one of her best pals, & I've got another best pal on the drawing board, if I can figure out a couple of hair issues. These are quick & addictive & I can see myself getting [more] completely ridiculous over them (the t-shirt has a freezer paper stencil on it, ok?).
Now I just need to see if I can bring myself to let my daughter play with them.
