A recycled magazine bat ^_^
This one took me a little longer than I’d like, but I think that’s probably because I have to wrap so many layers (especially the circular areas) and it’s so small the details took some fiddling.
I was planning to paint it, but both JJ and I like it unpainted. I kinda based it off a basket I made, mentioned in this post, and that thing took forever, so it was nice to do something smaller. I was also trying to get some ideas from quilling, although very little came up when I searched for “quilled bat”. I did find this page which I ended-up following for the wings using some pins stuck into my sewing box for the “husking”.
I’d like to try making some variations at some point. I really like the idea of make some difference sizes, styles, and phases of flight, and having a small murder put up as wall hangings.
Anywho, that’s this week’s Baturday 🙂
I’ve got quite a bit of blogging to catch-up on, but I’m preparing to move and, well, it’s winter, so I’m in slow-mode. 😛
You may have noticed that I’ve made some visual changes to my blog, I’m hoping it’ll look a lot nicer like this, but feel free to give me you opinion. It is still kinda under construction, but I think it’s looking okay =)
