You know when a migraine has messed with your head when:
.....you manage to spill a full cup of coffee over yourself
and then try to pour freshly cooked pasta into the sink instead of a collander
so it came as no surprise that my attempts to colour this week have ended in abject failure!
But with Valentine's Day looming I had to get creative
so I turned to Milo for help
I created this little bear years ago when I used to paper piece
Do you like the background?
Would you like to know how to make it?
Take two complimentary DP's and cut out a circle from one of them
Mark out a grid on the reverse and cut slits
Cut identical width strips in the other DP and weave through the circle
Secure with tape on the back and trim to shape
Attach the newly woven circle to a larger disc cut from plain cardstock
Now I decided to off set the circle slightly and trimmed off an edge but when I went to mount Milo he looked a little odd floating in mid air!
That is when I hit upon the idea to turn the trimmed edge 180 and re-attach it to the base of the circle.
