What is it?? - giveaway!!


I started 'playing' with some bits (I won't call it yarn because it isn't) and this was the result.

I'm really not sure what to call it though so here's where you come in. Give it an interesting name and a short blurb (if you are so inclined) . All of the responses will be reviewed and one will be selected at random to win something from my Etsy shop!

So, let your imaginations run wild! I can't wait to see what ideas you have.

Entries will close on Easter Sunday at Midnight!

This is so far-fetched, but I'm thinking Video killed the Radio Star or Never Surrender...it looks like you used the tapes from cassette tapes which is awesome if you did. I feel an '80s vibe because of that...and because I love the eighties, LOL!


I'll have to think about this some more!

I thought of Moulin Rouge as soon as I saw those colours! Very bright and colourful! ...hope you had fun trying something new!

It's a scuttler!! A scuttler on its way to a party with all its party gear on all shiny and sparkly!

It's a Bicycle Seat Leaf Hopper :) (Which sounds silly, but no sillier than the Buffalo Leaf Hopper, which is a real bug.) It's a bright-colored insect known for the serious races up and down rose branches the males perform during mating season.

Coral Reef

The accumulation of material, broken and piled up by wave action, produces a massive formation that supports the living corals and a great variety of other animal and plant life. -Columbia Encyclopedia

Jellyfish came to my mind immediately after seeing it. Although I guess the colors differ quite a bit ;-)

Cool piece regardless!

Baldy's New Toupee


Baldy got tired of doing the comb over and got bored with wearing toupees that look like dead squirrels sitting on his gleaming hairless pate- So, he bought this hot new crocheted haircover with curling strands and is now enjoying the come hither glances from the female gender!

The little red "thing"..It hasn't got a name yet, since it is still being created..

Uneek, that is hilarious!

I thought of a Sting Ray. She doesn't look like all the other sting rays, but she learns to love her uniqueness.

Space creature. Very friendly, though. So much so, that if you don't watch it, he will come sit next to you and share your dinner. He's a great companion--if you don't mind the slime.

Cuttlefish! I met an Etsy member on Twitter who makes clay cuttlefish. The real fish is an unique looking little creature, lol. She makes them look so cute. So if you're design is a cuttlefish, she's a cutie!

I thought it looked like a jellyfish, too.

My thought is something like "Ameoba" or "Cell Nuclei" -- It looks like a cell or bacteria or something to me!

Alia said...

My first thought was "placenta," though it's a very party-ready placenta! I think I'd vote for the Scuttler above -- that's better that anything I can come up with.

Looks like it was made with curling ribbon, but it looks like a thin slice of seedless watermelon.

It looks like cassette tape and perhaps curling ribbon. I saw it and thought immediately of a bicycle seat but that idea was already posted... sooo

how about Red Planet aomeba.

It's a ladybug's nest, where momma can watch over her little ones. A refuge, a heart-shaped home, warm and loving like momma's huge heart.

Thanks for all of the wonderful comments. The winner has been notified.

Now, what was it really?

P.Harper was partially correct in stating that it was made with curling ribbon. Its actually
curling ribbon (red and yellow) and trimmed with audio tape!

There was nothing to give any idea as to the size of the piece. It is actually 18" long (left
to right).

It is part of the construct known as the Scottsdale Reef Project that went on display in
Scottsdale, Arizona on April 11, 2009 at the Scottsdale Public Library.

Many thanks to all who entered!

A fun idea.
