Last step in the Modded Brown Quilt - binding.
Hopefully I could get the handbinding down by... hmmm...eventually???
And apparently I am now the family clown. Well I don't wear the silly nose or put on the clown costume but I am getting quite familiar with the balloon arts...
This is the latest creation - Flowers with very long stems. I sometimes also fold up the stems to make leaves. The kids love watching me make it, loves to play with them, and they're relatively cheap. Once it goes a little flat it gets tossed.
Here's also enjoying the latest additions to our living room:
Each flower machine takes 2 long balloons. I pump up the stem first, make a little nub for flower center. Then with the other balloon, fold it into 5 petals and connect it to the stem.
Took a little trial and error to get the petals to be even ... and for the balloons to stop popping. Did I mention I have this fear for balloons popping? Well I got over that one by this point :P.
So what have I made so far in the world of balloon art? Not that much - hearts, different flowers, Mickey Mouse ears, chains, palm tree (that one is a bust), and the ever popular sword. Haha just something to keep the kids entertained.
