Magic Mushrooms

Hello peeps.  I have been having a lovely 3 weeks off work (yikes, 3 weeks......Monday is going to be difficult!!), Mallorca first then a few days with my brother who was visiting from Ecuador....all to be topped off tomorrow with a crop and a chance to meet fellow WOYWWers at the grand event that the lovely Julia has organised here.

Those of you who saw my desk this week may have spied my mushroom that I made.


I used some pale suede for the gills underneath and the stalk and red leather for the cap.  I used my crop-a-dile to punch some pale spots.  The cap is stuffed with toy stuffing and its all stuck together with leather glue.

I have made 3 different 'shrooms so far (2 brown and 1 red) all from leather/suede from local cobblers or the scrap store...not sure what to do with them, I was thinking of sourcing a split log with the bark still on and drilling some holes in and making a 'scene' with them.....not sure yet, may just turn them into brooches!

Anyway, I am looking forward to meeting some fellow WOYWWers tomorrow, and for those that can't attend I am taking my camera!!

Happy Crafting
