You know how I have always complained about the lack of handmade fairs in my city? Well it finally happened. We had one; organized by CraftMNL and ANTHILL Fabric Gallery. And I was there, woot!
Okay, it seems terrible of me as a Cebu craft blogger to write about the fair AFTER it took place. My only defense was that I got busy. Yeah, yeah, what else is new, right? But truly, I was. Not only did I have to spend twice the amount of time on sewing and general handmade production, I also had to prepare for my second rubber stamp craft workshop. Oh yeah, we also joined an art toy show and spent many hours making our pieces as well.
When the boyfriend was invited to join the toy show, our first idea involved making cat softies. The theme for the show was Kaiju, by the way. We were shopping for materials for the softies one afternoon when we stopped to have lunch. And that is when the following idea took shape:
The Blister Sisters have doll parts for the head, arms, and legs. The torso is a miniature house made of matting board.
For the finishing touches, we added miniature sweets inside the torso houses. Bathed them in two layers of Mod Podge and packaged in macaroon boxes.
Creepy cute, yes?
