Oh hey, happy Sunday! We've done nothing today but eat a fat kid breakfast--from BK--nap the entire day away, and then finish up with a semi-fat kid dinner at Cinco de DRINKO. No drinks for this girl today
So, about this rustic yarn wreath you see here on the right... I made this custom for my bestie Shena's mom (who loves log cabin-y things and such) for Mother's Day actually, but I handed it over yesterday... Listen, different states, different cities, it happens!
Shena gave me the color pallet to work with (forest green and mauve) as well as a request for a black bear muppet. Here's what I got right--the forest green. Apparently my dumb ass thought cranberry was the same as mauve....HELLO! So when I sent Shena a photo of the first version I finally figured out that, oh hey, it's not Christmas, now is it?!? NO!
|Did someone order a Christmas Wreath?|
Oh, they didn't? SHIT.
Oh, and the black bear request? Forget about it! I had the hardest time finding anything that was B.Chen-doable that wasn't a TEDDYBEAR. So, taking pity on me, Shena suggested a tree or a pinecone, or something that I could actually handle.
While I was searching for a pinecone pattern I managed to download a VIRUS that my husband had to
This was by and far the hardest YW I've ever done! Seriously. I think that when you're making something custom for a good friend makes it even trickier--I mean, this was a present for her amazing mother and the last thing I wanted to was eff it up!
Here are some photos of the final version:
|Oh hey mister pinecone! only one virus and a hot glue blister|
