Day #38: Dancing Avacado(g)

We just returned, just walked in the door, and I still needed a puppet for today. I had no ideas and feared I was back to my paperbag back-up plan. I walked into the kitchen to look around desperately, and this is what I saw:

I love avocados. I wish they grew on trees in Virginia. That would be awesome. But look closely at the mesh you see those two holes on the top part. I don't know why the manufacturer put them there, but I had a genuine "Ah-hah!" moment of clarity. I knew what to do.

I cut off the mesh part, flipped through a magazine, cut out an image, and applied tape.

I took the extra meshy material and made a tutu. The holes from the top photo are under the tutu and meant for fingers!
In action!
Now I really, really need to go to bed!


  1. I've said this before, but it bears repeating: your creativity is a delight.

  2. Adorable! I'm really enjoying your project, Heidi!

  3. XD Okay, the dog's head really makes this...
