Or is it that Fools Never Differ?
I was reading through my 'New Book' last night, when I came across a pattern for The Frog Prince...
A Frog which turns into a Prince...
And this book was published 20 years ago.
Yet two months ago, when I came up with the idea of making a Prince Charming Toy which changed from a Frog into a Prince - I thought it was a totally new idea!
I really did think that I was the Cleverest Bunny in the Woods.
But since then, I have seen several versions of my idea... ALREADY designed...
Oh well, as they say... There's nothing new under the sun.
I especially love the use of ric-rac on the pond.
Ric-Rac. Lurve me some Ric-Rac...
And you'd never guess to look at it - but there is RECYCLING at play here!
The body of the Frog and Prince is a recycled Lemonade Can... How awesome is that?
But wait, there's more...
This Doorstop Cat has a container inside, filled with sand or pebbles to really give it some weight:
The wings on these Christmas Fairies use transparent film from a gift box lid:
This Victorian Lady has a plastic bottle inside her, again filled with sand... to keep her balance on the Dressing Table:
The Victorian Lady above, and the Flying Witch below, both use scraps from pantyhose for their faces:
And these last two characters are made from socks:
Loads of ideas to try out now...
