I have been really busy organizing my craft room after the roof leak and still cleaning out the stuff from the attic and garage. BUT I did think that a sleeve from one of my old sweaters looked a little like a snake, so I wanted to try making it into one. It is quite silly looking.
Because everything is still in disarray I didn’t take photos of the process, but I learned a few more things during the task, so hopefully when things are back together here and I have time to really get back to it I will sort of know what I’m doing.
This little fellow is made completely from recycled items. The sleeve from an old sweater, the stuffing from an old throw pillow and some buttons from my button jar. Does everyone save buttons that come with blouses and things they buy (or ones that come off or they find etc?) I sure do and have for years. Oh, I guess the thread I used to stitch him up was new. Otherwise, he’s really something old!
I admit, he’s pretty silly looking ,but I think my grandson will get a kick out of him. Oh, his tongue is part of the sweater. I took one of the red stripes, rolled it, zig zag stitched it and sewed it in! 🙂
Now onto Handmade Monday. I’m very very late! 🙂 Please go check them out. It’s always great fun!
