EmilyNZ's Mushroom Tutorial

I have had a number of requests to post a shroom tutorial. Here it is!... I posted an easy one and a harder one. If you try this, please post some pics. Or if I have given enough detail let me know also!
I didn't show how to punty or form loops....
The items you need on hand before you start are
Clear rod 8-10mm and clear for encasing.
A 3mm stringer. A striped one looks cool for the stem.
Coloured rod for the cap and for contrasting dots.

Thank you Emily! I was hoping you would share this! I've been able to do the simple version, but had no idea about the complex one with the little dots! Thank you! I will be trying it later and posting results.

Val

Lightbulb!!! I can see the possibility of making encased ladybugs this way. Wanna give it a try, Emily, Lenda? Thanks for the tutorial.

Hello Emily - I just tried to send you a message and the system refused to take it, because it said your message box was full and it couldn't take any more messages till you cleared it out.
