This is my first creepy crawly that has been added to a hair clip. I went for a wasp because of the colours, vivid black and gold stripes and I loved the idea of him floating above the head. He’s made from a mixture of felt and cotton with a black soft netting covering his body.
This was very much a trial and error creation. I tinkered with the organza wings and while I am still very pleased with how they turned out, it’s only by looking at my later winged beasties, that I realise how tatty they look. But that could be said to be part of the charm I suppose.
I love wire, this black memory wire gives the wasp mobility and I love how it can be altered in relation to the head.
