No I have not gone banana's, it was a rethorical question :-). For my C&G course I had to make a 3d object inspired by fruit or seed pods. Well I must admit I found this a very difficult assessment. For some reason it got stuck in my mind that I had to reproduce a fruit or seed pod. Luckily this was not the case, so I could let my imagination go wild. The inside of the banana peel is made from cotton, black Misty Fuse and cheesecloth. The parts are connected with zippers. On the outside I crunched cheesecloth, added some hand stitching and several layers of acrylic paint. By using thin layers of different colors, the colors shimmer through. And as a finishing touch I added beaded tassels. Making these was really a challenge as one of my cats was sitting next to me and was very interested in what I was doing.
