it was my gorgeous niece katie's birthday last week and when asked what she would like the request was for a babushka phone charm doll! now the title i go by is icantsew for a reason... eeeekkkk a phone charm?? as all procrastinators do i started on something else, a ninja. i recently won a giveaway hosted by urbancraft where i won a miniature ninja, i decided to copy it and give it to katie to keep a watch over her. it is nowhere near as good as my one from urbancraft but i still think it is cute.
even though i have a healthy collection of buttons, i could not find any small enough for this project, if you haven't worked it out yet mine is the one without buttons for eyes.
i still have no idea why the photos aren't turning the right way, but i wanted to show you how small these little guys are.
now don't worry, i did give Katie a proper present, little bits and pieces that teenagers love. so once i realised i had to bite the bullet and make this phone charm i decided that i would leave it the same size as the other dolls but just add a piece of ribbon for hanging. i am not sure if it will fit in the phone as i didn't really have any ribbon thin enough and i didn't want to use thread as i thought it wouldn't be strong enough. if it doesn't work she can hang it from her back pack. anyhow hope she is happy with it.
have a great week.
