YoYo Caterpillar

Attempting to dream up fabric "toys" without stuffing or "bits", Yoyos came to mind.  It might have taken four attempts to get the right frill but I do now have something that I find acceptable!  Sorry the tail's hidden but this is the best pic of a bad bunch tonight .......... I do honestly think it looks much nicer than it does here.  No prizes for guessing the destination of this but I hope it's constructed in such a fashion in that it will be remembered and perhaps even replicated in part by somebody in years to come in the same way that I remember the YoYo clown sitting in a great aunt's spare bedroom when I was a child ........... the inspiration for my YoYo Caterpillar



I can finally post the contents of my giveaway at the end of last year now Linda has received it (my fault it was so late) ......... some of my hand coloured stuff along with a couple of other loosely co-ordinating bits.



Blogger says try the new Blogger Interface .............. I don't suppose I can go back now!!!!!

I hope you don't mind that I've used your idea for a session with our craft group, which makes items for OCC shoeboxs. You can see how I developed your idea here: http://puppetystuff.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/occ-craft-group-yo-yo-caterpillars.html.

Thanks for the inspiration!
