Two heads are better than one...


Especially if one is crochet and one is knit!

Work progresses on the Manga Spirits; more coming soon :-)

  2. Beth, looks like they are coming along great. I am, of course, partial to the crocheted one since I can't knit, that two needle thing is beyond me. From your sketch, I like the size too. I've been needing something new to crochet!

  6. Beth,

    I love your work! How do you do the eyes if I may ask? Felt and ink?

    Thank you!

  8. Thanks for the great words, Anita, Michelle, and Joyce :-)

    Michelle, I used white cotton broadcloth that I ironed fusible interfacing to the back of, for the the eyes. I drew them in pencil and outlined them with either a Micron black pen or a black Sharpie fine felt pen. I painted the iris's with acrylic paint and a very small (size 2) shader brush. The eye shine was applied with a toothpick.
