Having spent a pleasant hour or so this morning with my pal Sassie and her husband who popped over to visit as they were staying with a mutual friend of ours in Guildford for the weekend, (and she said she wasn't going back home until she had seen me), this afternoon I finished off what I had started yesterday, some more playing with my Crafty Croc bits and pieces - working on a sort of Easter/Spring theme. I was back working with cotton covered balls, which I painted with acrylic paint, googly eyes and felt, which I still had in my craft box.
The chick was fairly easy, and I managed to squash the base of the ball for him to stand up on his own. The other animal was more difficult - it was supposed to be a Rabbit ! - but I couldn't get the balls to squash into egg shapes, so it appears I have had a happy accident and made a dog! (grin!). I might try again using the smaller balls as in the chick, and see if they work better.
Finally I had painted up one of the balls as a flower centre yesterday, and today I cut it in half - so have another half ball to make something else with. I also cut out 6 petal shapes from felt and threaded them on to some green glitter pipe cleaners, arranged them into a flower shape and glued them together, then glued on the centre, as you can see I have turned it into a pencil topper.
