Oh baby, I found a way to use these wipes

On Day 7 of 22, I showed I colored and sewed these baby wipes using dye ink.  I also lamented that I was drawing a blank as to how to use them.

I decided to deconstruct them.

I call this The River Sticks

I could have named it River Bamboo, but that would not have been as effective as my take on the River Styx.  For those who don't know, the River Styx is a mythological river that runs between earth and the underworld, or Hades.  I thought the wipe wrapped bamboo looked like boats.

I thought the wipe wrapped bamboo looked like boats.  Here are a few more close-ups.

I used E6000 to attach the large bamboo and the adhesive leaked through the fabric, much to my chagrin.

For this entry, which is Day 20 of 22 leading up to bEARTHday, I recycled my bamboo (3 small and one medium), free from my yard, a piece of gifted fabric, deconstructed baby wipes, and three buttons from my button box.  You can tell they are used, because they are old and don't match.

Thank you SO much for sticking with my blog while I was temporarily kicked out of it.
