I've been n the middle of preparing items for a local consignment sale. In the middle of the chaos I got a request to make some rainbow lizard barrettes for a friend's daughter. Her fifth birthday is coming up and her theme is lizards and the party colors were bright green, blue, pink and orange.
I found the perfect yarn at Hobby Lobby and went to work. I stayed up late every night for a few days making sure I would have the lizards ready. Even though we haven't had any sun for a few days (meaning dark pictures) I snapped a few pictures.
She wanted four lizards total, two larger and two smaller. A set for her daughter and a set for her daughter's doll.
I took the pictures before I sewed them to the barrettes. When I went to sew the last small lizard on, I noticed something. Do you see it?
Let me help. See that arrow?
Somehow I managed to only give this poor lizard one little toe instead of three like the other feet. Lets just say I had to make another small lizard.
This lizard is based on the Lion Brand bookmark, but I did them in one piece instead of each limb separately and a much shorter tail.
