Mermaids` Makings

And some more bears…

I had to buy more pipecleaners for the birthday invites.. so instead of getting just one colour, I chose a packet of ten different colours. And- yes that`s right- my little one  wanted me to make her ten teddies of course.


So I made two princesses…

And two fairies…

And some more bears for the kingdom…

And a King!

The tissue paper that lil mermaid is putting on top of the towers is not just any old tissue paper. It gives the bears POWER and MAGIC!

Anyway.. whilst I was cooking tea the king had his birthday party celebrations :) I don`t know what all the bits and pieces are, but they are very important!

This is a fairy godmother. I made her from crepe paper and then glued the egg cup underneath to make the dolly stand up. I remember making these crepe paper dollies when I was a child. And now I have made a couple for my own child.

    You have such great ideas. Do you make the fairy godmother by rolling up the paper and then cutting the arms and skirt?

    Those bears are adorable! I remember making the crepe paper dolls too, and lots of other pipe cleaner creatures, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pipe cleaner teddy bear.

      Proovi jah. Ainult, et nendest satud sõltuvusse :D Sul oleks lahe mõne nukuga kaasa panna.
      Tahan mõned neljajalgsed ka teha. Annabel siiani ei lasknud.. tahtis neid kahejalgseid :)
