I finished my first challenge item!

I started out with these odd pink things:

Not really sure what they’re supposed to be. “Ah!” says I, “They look like mustaches!” So mustaches they became. First I painted them:

One black, one sort of a peppered grey. Then I affixed a finger strap:

Meaning I hot glued a tube of fabric to the back. And voila! Mustaches! And since the challenge was to create some gifts, I gifted them to my sister:

Now she’s (and the cat’s) prepared whenever she needs a disguise!

Mich, of Mich L in LA is currently having a challenge/contest. She, like Heather of Dollar Store Crafts filled some envelopes with random supplies, had a drawing for names and addresses, and mailed off her packages of doom, challenging recipients to make three gifts from the contents.

As you can see, I’ve got an interesting bunch of stuff here. A bunch of beads, some weird pink things that look like mustaches, and some jewelry findings. I’ve got some immediate ideas, like earrings or a necklace, and I’m definitely going to do something with that notebook as well as the drawstring bag. Stay tuned over the next couple of days to see what I come up with! I’ve already finished one item (but I still need pictures of it, which is why it’s not included today). And don’t forget to stop by Mich’s blog!
