I love recycling!!


At last my first paper mache dol is finished...and I'm pretty chuffed about her! She is totally made from recycled material. The news print is already made from recycled paper the flower was something I crocheted a few years ago and found in my wool stash. The wood is old fire wood and little scraps of cotton was used to sew the arms on.


The plasticine used to make the form gets recycled to once its been cut out of the paper mache cast. Fun, fun to make, I'm going to make some more after market day...YIKES it's next weekend......sew much sewing going on...and some painting...better dash...lucky it's day light saving here and it doesn't get dark till 9, my brain is tricked into believing there are more hours in the day!
