I finished my blog challenge in a nick of time. LOL. It is still January 20, right? When I received the package in the mail from Ali, my first thought was LACE? Seriously, what am I going to do with lace. The sari ribbon and BRIGHT pink nylon also through me for a loop... What would I do with these item? The felt heart and beads were not so intimidating as the lace.

SO.....I decided to embrace the challenge and have some fun with it. Because much of the items Ali sent us were pink, I decided to play up the pink and really glam up my project. I added glitter to the background, red tinsel and more hearts.
Here is a full view of my Sweet little Valentine Angel

This photos shows the sari yarn, red beads and the piece of pink nylon. I hooked the sari ribbon into her coat and hooked some pink wool in with it. The pink nylon was really bright and I decided to add it to her body as a scarf. I will say that nylon hooks up very interestingly. The loops almost take on a pattern. This a material that I will explore hooking with in the future.

Here you can see how I used the felted heart. I threaded it through a piece of wire, added a few felted red balls and attached the wire to her hand. Whimsical don't you think?

You can see how the sari ribbon in the jacket in this picture. See how bright the pink nylon is? It makes a nice little scarf!

The lace was so white that I definitely needed to tone down it down some....Ali tea dyed her lace. I opted to attached a piece of red glitter scrapbook border to it to quiet all the white. A little tag that I made is attached over the lace.

To finish the project, I added glitter to the background, attached red tinsel hearts and made a halo out of a pipe cleaner.

Check out Ali Kris and Alice's blogs to see what they did with their items.
Kris is sending out the next items and I look forward to more creative hooking. Thanks for stopping by. Maria
