WOYWW 259! Nearly there…


Happy WOYWW!

It’s the BIG 5th Anniversary Crop on Saturday.  Unless DS has problems with his tooth extraction on Thursday (like he can afford to lose any “wisdom” LOL!) I’ll be there.  I’ve been dithering about what to bring to do – I will come by train so don’t want to bring masses of stuff, and I enjoy the chatting and the in-person snooping, so I though I might bring my extra ATCs to trade, but on a whim I also designed these little spiky guys.  I may print a load of them out and make them for anyone who wants one as a little commemorative item to take away.



I have changed it, so the text is easier to read and doesn’t curve around the body quite so much.  Doesn’t he look like he is wide-eyed with appreciation of your extreme craftiness?

I’ve made a few of these in the last few days – love the process, from the designing of the area to print to the slightly fiddly construction.  This one is big, cause he’s for me but the actual one prints two to a sheet so is more like the smallest one here.


That one is about 4 inches from sitting butt to tip of the pointy ears. Cute and compact. You can also see two I made for DS – one with a favourite musician (read yesterday’s post if you don’t know who it is – and really, why would you? You’re not a 21 YO gamer, are you?) and one with a photo some Dundee nightclub posted and tagged him on – him and his girlfriend  on a night out.

Lastly, since my desk is so clean, I could scoot all that away to take a quick shot of my two Rainbow Babies for Margaret at glitterandglue. I’ll aim to pop them in the mail the same day I send out my ATCs.
See some of you on Saturday!

  16. Pointy eared souvenirs – only you – they are fab! Love the picture of DS and girl, can see why the nightclub chose that! The dollies are gorgeous, how sweet and such a great idea don’t ya think. If you want to do more and need some more yarn, I’ve just unpicked a blanket. Also…Di of Pixies Crafty Workshop is coming to the Crop and yep – lives in Basingstoke and is driving..should I hook her up with you?

  17. I love those little critters they are so cute. You must work around the clock to get so much done. Have fun at the crop.

    Happy WOYWW

  21. Enjoy your time at the crop. I sent a whole lot of ATCs to swap at the crop to Alison H (Ali H) from Wales…hope they get to her in time. Did you get my ATC yet? It should have arrived by now! Love your little guys.

  24. OMgoodness your little ear guys are super. Have a great time at the crop and I absolutely love your instructions for the gorgeous tags. I can see what I will be doing this weekend.

  25. Those little paper5 creations are just so darned cute!! Well done.Love those little knitted babies too!

  26. Your spiky little guys look great. See you on Saturday. I’m bringing cake. Haven’t thought about which crafty stuff yet. Got to get the priorities right!

  27. You should get a degree in Paper Engineering. These are SO cute.

    Be sure to take your camera on Saturday. I want PICTURES of the crop. I live vicariously, so it will make me feel like I was there, even though we both know that won’t happen, at least not this year (grin).

    No number yet, but I’m getting an early start, since Julia is still sleeping.

    • I wish I could take credit for the spiky guy but the template is actually one from a series (actually maybe 6 or 7 series) of similar ones by a well-know toy designer. From what I can find he shares them but for a limited time so finding a template online was a bit of a challenge. I quite fancy the grown-up Spiky but it looks challenging!

      Maybe next year? 🙂
