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!

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

Quilled Red Dahlias in a Shadowbox Frame

I know it’s been a while since I last posted something or commented on other blogs, but I have a very good excuse for this: we’re on holiday! We’ve been in Iasi for a week to visit Lucian’s parents and leave behind all the hussle and bustle from Bucharest.

Of course, visiting people meant I had to prepare a few presents which I must confess I enjoyed so much working on them!

The idea for this framed quilled picture took shape after I did the flower for the Homyachok challenge. The flower turned out pretty big and I loved it so much that I knew it will become one day a part of a bigger project. So I quilled 2 more dahlias initially, remade the twigs because I wanted them to pop-out and added a butterfly. But… I always change the design in the last minute, so this is the end result:

Tomorrow we’re going to the seaside until the week-end so I won’t be able to reply to any emails. I wish you all a lovely holiday!
