Wearable art works in progress, Creative Tanks update.

Wearable art works, Creative Tanks meetings this week…

…and I feel so alive! So, Creative Tanks will be in it’s third year for the 2013 Carnival of Flowers festival in Toowoomba. It will also be my third year in participating in the Creative Tanks project for the CoF fortnight. As soon as I saw the registration open on the .made Creative Space website, I applied because 2013 is the last chance to do something like that, here, at least for awhile.

We had a meeting today and things got done; planning for our spaces and what not.

The wearable art works:

I have a couple of older photos of things I have been working on, but haven’t gotten around to writing about. I have to continue crocheting puppet legs (?), so I will make this brief.

I learned Crocodile Stitch to have another great textural stitch to fall back on; again from a tutorial linked on Pinterest. It is also known as Alligator, Pineapple and Scale Stitch.


I learned this via HS Schulte’s YouTube video ‘How to Crochet a Crocodile Stitch Tutorial’.


And so on.

Also, this is what happened to all those skull-themed granny squares I was crocheting awhile back. I turned them into a skirt:


Then I modelled said skirt while I took a photo of a mirror; oh la la!


A nice shiny mirror!
