I put a thin line of miskit around the edges of the eggs. I like Pebeo Drawing Gum, which is the gray line you see in the photo. Then I put down a piece of blue painter's tape along the edge of the carton and began painting
C O L O R. And, for me, the added fun of the preciseness of the letters!
It was also fun to mix colors to get as exact a representation of the actual colors on the carton as possible.

When I got home I placed the carton and some eggs on a dishtowel and took numerous photos and chose this one.
|After more drawing, from the photo, the painting is finally ready to begin.|

As I've mentioned before, I am all about the crochet right now. So I looked through patterns that come to me via email, and I found one for little sandals.
These were just too cute not to make!! I did make a couple of slight modifications. I made the tie straps longer for ease of tying a little bow. Then, the pattern called for wrapping the toe area several times, but I just used a piece of yarn, wrapped it a couple times and tied a bow.
I've got so many skeins of yarn now, in various stages of use, so I want to use up as much as I can. Since the pattern called for a double sole - yikes, the child will not be walking for months, but these soles are rugged!!! - I used yellow on the bottom and pink on top. That way I could easily use the multi-colored yarn for the rest of the shoe and it would all coordinate. May as well teach her about coordinating outfits early on!
Here they are - and they almost fit her little tiny feet! In another month or so they should be right on - just in time for the summer fashion season!
The pattern for these sandals can be found at www.whistleandivy.com.
