Over on the Bead Buddies Forum a member, names Gaynor, posted a challenge. Her forum name is "Purple Cobwebs" so of course her challenge was to be the same, come up with something to do with purple and/or cobwebs. (Gaynor is a Lampworker and she sells a lot of her bits and bobs for charity, you can find her HERE)
I got out my Shrink Plastic, drew a free-hand cobweb on it and three little spiders, Daddy Spider, Mummy Spider and Baby Spider, which I coloured in purple with my Sharpies.
I shrunk them down and they did look ever so cute.
I was going to attach the spiders with monofilament (ie: fishing wire) but really wanted something more fluid and....well.... spidery. So I went with crochet cotton. Very very thin crochet cotton, worked on a 1.5mm hook.
I found a cute little black and white button which I used as a fastening.
ps: The Amazon links are affiliated if you click and buy I might get a few pennies. Just so you know :)
