Ox swap Plus...burrito pillowcases

The Oz Swap

Recently a few crafty friends decided to have an Oz swap and each choose a character to make, using the medium of our choice. As you can see, we had some wonderful ornaments made. Thanks to all who participated and also , special thanks to Jan Young for joining us with an extra special surprise...the the tin man!

The first is made by Judy who chose a pattern designed by The Cheswick Company . the Cowardly Lion is made from felt and though a real scardy cat, he is as cute as can be! Judy sells her lovely hand made needlework and crafts at her daughter's primitive shop , Seasons of the Heart, in East Liverpool Ohio...

The Tin Man was made and designed by Jan Young. Jan always never fails to come up with such original work and designs . You can see more of her creations at Raggedy Jan and Primitive Ewe.
You will see many fine things for sale in her Esty shop at Raggedy Jan. Her paintings are awesome!

Dorothy and Todo

Dorothy was made and designed by the long time doll artisan, Jean StAubin. She has added a lot of detail, including Todo in her basket! Jean has retired from the craft business, but like many of us, keeps her interests and skills and shares them on a private forum we all belong. Jean used wood, cloth and mixed medium in making this lovely doll.Notice her red shiny shoes!

Glenda Good witch was made and designed by Pammi counts.
I love the netted dress and the magic she illuminates with her wand! I can see why all little girls..and big ones too, love Glenda! Pammi used wood, netting, mixed medium and even a star shaped brilliant jewel on her wand. Pammi Keeps active doing projects for church and teaching SS . She is sewing up pillow cases for and painting memory boxes .

Our adorable Scare Crow was made by Deb Vance .He is made of cloth, burlap and imagine some straw tucked in there as well! Deb was born and lives in WV,wife of a minister there, and Director of their Food Pantry . She has been a long time Oz collector and has many crafting talents.

On their way to see the Oz at Emerald city!

The awesome wicked witch was made by Kathy Kirian. Kathy is a full time employee and yet finds time to craft and join our swaps. This bad girl is made of fabric, clay, and mixed medium. I love the green face with the wart! Nice job !

She has these mischievous flying monkeys as well!
Made by Cindy Boyenga of The Gathering Room, using clay, and trims and mixed medium. The wings are paper that was painted and modge podge used to give them a leather feel.

We hope you enjoyed seeing the ornaments of our latest swap! Thanks to all for all who participated in this swap!
As a special bonus, I added Dorthy's slipper to the swap.
Easy to make, using a child's size 1-2 shoe( from Goodwill shop, ) it is painted painted, glittered in red,and embellished with netted bow, musical paper liner, and an emnerald stone.
