My friend Rachael made fun of me for wasting time on making the bags. (Which is completely fair, cuz I did the same to her (first even) for spending her time knitting wash rags.) Anyway, I decided to show her. She loves Halloween too, so I made her a special gift bag to send her Devil Bob in.
I made special three dimensional teeth (the other half of the mouth is on the inside of the bag, so you can't see those teeth). I spent far too much time tying this thing with different colors of embroidery floss, to give the skin a funky texture. I then gunked it up (and probably shouldn't have) with glow-in-the-dark puffy paint.
I really like the tag. I loosely stuffed a white cotton glove. Then I embroidered her name, the nails. and joint details and finally added the french knots. All of this went thru all the layers (there are lots of knots on the back). I used a safety pin to attach the tag, so it comes off.
And I think it's fair to say Rach liked her bag, and maybe doesn't think they're a COMPLETE waste of time...
That's it for me, I've written enough today. Have to say the knee doesn't like sitting at the computer much. I've been bad today anyway. Can you believe I slept until 11 this morning? I couldn't get to sleep last night, but still. And I haven't done any of my physical therapy. D'oh, better have done it a couple of times before my husband gets home so he doesn't yell at me.
