Peaceful in Pink Origami Cranes

Purchase #2: Origami Cranes

Also a purchase from Wendy’s Origami on Etsy, these itty bitty pink fabric cranes came in a set of ten and was packed in a light pink organza bag with a little story card about Sadako.

Sadako was a little girl who suffered from leukemia after the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima during World War II. She believed that folding 1000 cranes would grant her wish to be healthy. Sadly she passed away before she completed her project.

This is a purchase that speaks directly to my lack of paper folding ability. I had decided to fold 1000 cranes earlier this year and had even ordered the paper when …I gave up. I had made my first crane and tore it’s wing in the process! Poor crane never had a chance at a normal life! T^T

I’ll get back to that project eventually. Anywho….

Thanks for reading!

Tiniest Tako~! Micro Crochet Octopus

Tiniest Tako~! Micro Crochet Octopus

*Big yawn* Some may call me crazy (I probably am) but last night I made yet another octopus size. It’s so small it doesn’t have a face …at least not yet. I don’t have any beads or needles small enough. xD
I used Lizbeth crochet thread in size 80 and a Boye crochet hook in size 14
