Something different


I wanted to try something different. Is that ok? Here are some charms I made from Sculpey. I used ivory Sculpey, baked it, put in the hooks, then painted them with acrylic paints and glazed them with the Sculpey Glaze (gloss). They turned out pretty cute. I just don’t know what to do with them now. HahaI also knitted a scarf from Paton’s Lacette in Beautiful Blue. Nothing fancy. I just wanted a blue scarf. The yarn was on sale and I love blue. It’s a little itchy but maybe it’ll be better after I steam it. There are no pictures of the itchy scarf. (^_^)' But here's another picture of the charms! (*_*) I just realized I don't have any reference photos... for size. These little gals are about the size of an American quarter.

(^_^)v

ps~ Are any of you video gamers and knitters? Sony's PlayStation3 LittleBigPlanet SackBoy pattern is now available to download for free (and legally) at The Sun's website. Click on the red typeface in the article and wait patiently for a nice PDF file that you can save to your computer or print out. It's the pattern that was published in the January issue of UK's Simply Knitting - which we never could find on the stands/in the stores. Maybe a lot of traditional knitters got mad about that too; their favourite monthly magazine suddenly no where to be found because of insane videogaming knitting geeks. haha Happy knitting! (I dont think I'm talented enough to do this one... ugh)

These are adorable! You could use them as stitch markers, make little girl necklaces out of them, etc. Literally thousands of uses for these cute little items!

Those charms are adorable. Did you put the hook in before you burnt them??

Hi Conny, I actually put the hooks in AFTER I baked the clay. I made the HOLES BEFORE I baked it though. I used the hook to poke a deep hole in the soft clay and wiggled it a little bit. After the clay was baked and cooled I glued the hooks in and then painted them. ;)
