Somebody Smock Me...

... from making terrible puns. This week I have been mostly learning how to do smocking. It is certainly a time consuming craft, I can see how a pleating machine would come in handy, and how elastic was revolutionary. This aside, smocking is a delicate, quaint craft with a very practical purpose.
I also attempted to make some three dimensional shapes by wet felting, and using a variety of objects found about the flat. The yellow shape above did hold a lego brick!
