Hama Bead Ghost Pot

Crafty Bottle Cat

  This gorgeous creature was made by Maddy after she was inspired by the shape of a beer bottle left on the side one morning. He reminds me of Carwash from Willow the Wisp, but Maddy didn’t know the character so I think it is co-incidence. This cat would make a great Halloween cat,...
