it began with the little felted hearts we've been making and giving wings.
somehow in the process, my son was not pleased that all of the hearts looked the same and he asked if he could pick some differnt wings.
we consulted this gorgeous book, and from that point all bets were off. he chose the wing pattern on the cover.
she loves that there are eyes on the wings.
of course i couldn't stop at the wings. we were creating full-on love bugs; searching the internet for mounting and labeling directions. there were so many little bits to sink my creative teeth into along the way...
i can hardly wait to make more!
our love bugs were created from felted wool sweaters, shopping bag paper, salvaged beads and sequins, 18gg galvinized wire.
the mounting box is made from cardboard boxes, salvaged blueprints, and recycled (misprinted) wedding invitations.
