Handmirror spider...............

I made this little spider today.
The embroidery comes from the back of a hand mirror I believe from the 50's by the style of it.
The mirror was cracked and destined for the rubbish but I managed to save it and turn it into a little beast.
Very satisfying making something into a little bug!



I also got a brush with it which is the perfect size for a moths body!
Perfect.
A good days foraging I think!
