A cute little critter onion and birds nest jewelry
I try to focus on smaller things to make for now due to lack of time. I spent my 30 min lunches at work either crocheting or knitting. While I'm eating I usually catch up on reading my favorite arts and craft magazines, blogs or on-line info. So, this little colorful critter onion I made during 2 of my lunches and it will be up for sale in my PurplePlatypus shop later this w/end. This little hut is made with 100% cotton rope but since it's dyed in pink and blue and didn't say what it was dyed with I assume it might not be safe for a robo hamster to digest so this one is for sale in my shop as a play toy for children, assuming they are NOT going to chew and eat the rope it's made of. I will be making more critter onions for the real little pets but those will all be in natural rope, not dyed.
Then I also made some of these cute wire birds nests and made them into a pair of earrings and a necklace. The purple little bows are tied but also glued on so they stay put. I'm planning on making some more but without gluing the bows that way you can remove them and change them with a different color ribbon. The set is up for sale in my PurplePlatypus shop.
Got lots of treasuries to share but that's for later today. Have to get some laundry done first, then I get more time to play.
