I used to be a pipe cleaner

A pipe cleaner is a type of brush originally intended for removing moisture and residue from smoking pipes. 

But what if you don't smoke a pipe?
But do have a lot of pipe cleaners?
Crafters have the perfect solution:
By twisting and shaping these chenille stems it's possible to make the most wonderful things giving the pipe cleaner a total new function! 
Browsing the internet I came across the most beautiful creations ever.

I decided to have a go at it and after trying, plying and molding the first doggies came to life.
Here are a few of the creations I made.  No doubt more will follow. It's so much fun!

While I was taking pictures I could have sworn I heard them say:
 'Take all the pictures you want, but whatever you do, please keep us away from a pipe!" 

They are such softies!

  4. Hi Peggy, Surely you must have RL dogs as you were able to twist those pipe cleaners into such authentic characters.
    The transformation is quite amazing. Well done.
