I made a jellyfish!
At first I felt a bit guilty for snipping up that lace ribbon (let's call it both, shall we?) but then something occurred to me: if my great-grand daughter even has and cherishes something of mine I will be thrilled. If she wants to use something I made in a project she is making I would be over the moon because that's about the coolest thing ever. So, I smiled and snipped and stitched.
I really, really enjoyed making this little jelly. It's always so satisfying to make things but the added element of using a bunch of scrappy, trash bound bits to make something interesting was incredibly fulfilling. My fingers are itching to make another piece.
Now, a tonnage of pictures...
The pictures don't give any hint to size, so if you were wondering, he measures about 6.5 inches from crown to tentacle tips, which is about the size of an adult hand.
**PS - if anyone knows the official name for the lace ribbon do tell!
