Allow me to present Miss April Mae June Bugg. She is my entry in Loobylu's Month of Softies for June. I am so glad I was able to get something in for this month. Last month I just couldn't get it done.
Not the surest on her (six) feet, getting her to stand for her photo shoot was exhausting. I felt like a fashion photographer with a tempermental model. "Now turn slightly to the left, put that foot out to the side a bit, no not that foot... THAT foot... yes that's it darling, you're beautiful darling. Didn't I hear you were dating Leonardo....???" She's wobbly, but she does stand on her own.
She's sewn from felt, over a styrofoam base so her pipe-cleaner legs could have something solid to stick into. Her feet are cut from builders foam with felt sewn over it as well. Her antennea (sp?) are paper clips, her eyes and nose are buttons, and her pearly whites are map tacks. Here she is in her yoga pose, contemplating her chakras or something bug-like.
I can't believe tomorrow is the first day of JULY! Where is the time going?
