Inspited by Tsubasa Kuroda pompom brooches, I made this rooster as a Christmas decor. Rooster is a sign of the year in Chinese calendar, New Chinese year will begin on the 28th of January.
So, I'm ready =) Год Петуха по китайскому календарю наступит 28 января, я уже готова =) Петух из помпонов украшает нашу ёлку. Вдохновилась брошами Цубасы Куроды (кто не видел её сов, хаски и тигров???)
Invented a new technique of felting pompoms, adding "no glue" and "no sew" details to a pompom - his beak and other parts are not attached afterwards, they are made as a whole.
Made a loooong, extremely detailed tutorial for this pompom toy - not sure I have time to translate it all, so in Russian- HERE, in English - on demand if something's not clear. ;)
That was a gift for my girl. I want to try selling my crafts, miniatures and such - but she always comes up: "Weee, that's sooo cute!!! Gimme, gimme, gimme! Don't sell, don't give away, pleaaaase, pretty please, let me keep it!" - and so all my gifts and items-for-sale setlle down in her drawers, where they get lost and noone sees them anymore. Thus I made a special gift for her, not the nutshell she nagged for, but her special one. She loves a fairytale - 12 months - a story where a Princess wanted a basketful of snowdrops for the New Year's celebration and a greedy stepmother sent her poor stepdaughter to get the flowers in the snowstorm. The stepdaughter met all 12 months in the wood and April made some spring for her for an hour, she got the flowers and so on... So that's what my nutshell is devoted to.
Орех сделан в подарок моей дочери, которая обожает сказку 12 месяцев Маршака. По мотивам нового издания книги с иллюстрациями Митрофанова Максима Сергеевича.
