Making chenille bugs @ WBCL
These were a little complicated but turned out really well. I found excellent directions and pictures at AOK corral http://www.aokcorral.com/projects/how2jan2004.htm and we went on from there. Most of the participants were able to create a lady bug or spider without much difficulty. Then the fun began. The spiders needed to have webs and the lady bugs needed fancier feet than just bent chenille stems so tiny sparkle beads became feet. Some of the bugs got fancy eyes too. as you can see from the picture, one of the creations grew into a whole family of spiders climbing into a web.
