Homyachok Quilling Challenge #3 – Gifts of Summer

A new quilling challenge started on Homyachok challenge blog: Gifts of Summer!

You can make a postcard, a quilling picture or anything else that shows what Summer is all about: fruits, berries, mushrooms, wild flowers, etc.

This is what I have prepared as a guest designer for this month:

I started by making a few field flowers and I chose poppies for their red bright color. Continue reading →

Quilled Teddy Bear

As promised, here are a few more pictures with the quilled teddy bear: back and side view.

This little guy is only 4.5 cm tall, that is about 1 1/2″. I used 160g/sm paper because I knew lighter paper would mean more fringing.  I am going to try some 80g/sm paper for my next project of this type, just to see if I can make the quilled toy look more fluffy.

 Happy quilling!

Take a Quill Pill Challenge 12: Quilling for Kids – Quilled Teddy Bear

It’s time for a new challenge on Take a Quill Pill! This month’s theme is Quilling for Kids. It can be a card, a bookmark, a photo frame or anything else.

When Piyu told me what the theme was, the first thing that popped into my head was a plush toy. Kids love those! And I remember that when I was little my very first toy of this kind was a blue teddy bear. So I did my best to try and recreate it using paper strips. I had to do a lot of fringing for this, but, except for that, the project was easy and fun to make. I was in a hurry when I made the toy, I barely had time to buy those funny googly eyes. I feel though like he is missing a nose, so now I am trying to find a very, very small bead.

I hope you like my quilled teddy bear!

Make sure to check the blog to see some other great inspiring designs from my DT coleague, Suganthi.

Hope you will take part in this challenge! Happy Quilling!
