Getting Creative Again
Earlier this week, I finished Bent Creek's "Black Sheep."
Cute little guy, isn't he? And I was trying to figure out what to do with him. Then I remembered something I'd seen at the craft store when I was looking for those little Tim Holtz pocketwatches - an assemblage clock. So the wheels started turning...
I picked some fabrics, found the cutest little jointed bear amongst my collected bits of kitsch, and got to work. I made a pattern of the clock back with matboard, glued some fiberfill to it, and laced the stitched piece to that.
I glued the mounted piece to the clock back. Then I lined the metal inside of the clock with fabric (that fabric is dark blue with little silver sparkles), and glued my little bear in place. I made the bear a blanket with a contrasting fabric, and snapped the back on. I embellished the outside of the clock with some twisted cording and beads.
And ta-da!! Perfect for the little table in my guest room!
