Well, I bought one; $10. Half price. Just for fun. A friend suggested the project to me. I’m not sure she was expecting this result! What do you think?
I wrapped… and wrapped… and wrapped…
And glued… glued… glued! Lots of leftover scraps of fabric… pretty yarns, a bit of a pom pom.
8 hours later (yes – eight hours)… it was finished. Am I crazy? Ah… yes. Is it ‘over the top’ — yup.
A bit of leftover patchwork came in handy as well as a couple leftover patchwork blocks. I added batting, because I wanted to quilt shiny threads… but I didn’t like the bulk of trying to form it on the back side of the deer form… so placed the other one without the batting, on the shoulder. It looks way nicer.
A ribbon pom pom… seems to kinda fit, with this over-the-top reindeer!
Wow. Not sure I want to do another one. Although it was a GRAND adventure, and I enjoyed using my fabulous stash of yarns. It’s going to the Christmas Stroll at Fort Benton with me today, to be displayed on my table for the Art show in The Grand Union Hotel there. Perhaps, it will generate some comments?
Speaking of which… what do YOU think of my ‘wild and crazy’ REINDEER? (Use your best impression of Steve Martin here!)
