How to Make 3-D God's Eyes!

God's Eyes 3-D

My friend Michelle has inspired me on more than one occasion to think about the crafty possibilities of cereal box cardboard! Guess what - I just used it again - to make God's Eyes! And turned what was at first a negative outcome into a very cool new way to make God's Eyes! 3-D God's eyes!

You see, the problem that occurs when using cereal box cardboard for the supports is that after winding the yarn about four times, the God's Eye will begin to curve. No stopping it!

I have been weaving on a little different kind of "cardboard loom"! Weaving on cardboard objects! In this case cardboard containers! The weaving becomes part of the container, embellishing and strengthening at the same time.

Work in Progress - Tidal Pool Quilt Block

Tidal Pool Quilt block

I do not consider myself a quilter - and yet it is funny how many quilt projects I end up making!

Thought I would share my little tidal pool pillow top or table topper or wall hanging - it's final purpose is yet undecided!

Actually, I created this little block about a year ago. Once the yoyos were pinned in place, I set it aside to focus on Dala and that was that!
