Rangoli: My teddy bears
Created by SuriK on 2009-03-20,

I had my 5th birthday party in a place called "Build a bear workshop". It is a place where they help you build your own bear. They provide you with some of the basic materials like the fur, filler-material and bows. It was fun to build our own bears!

Last year, I decided to dress up my bears with different outfits. Finding a pretty outfit for my girl teddy bear was easy, I just took one of my outgrown formal dresses. But for the boy teddy bear, I had to think and come up with a few ideas. Everyone in my family laughed when I showed them my boy teddy bear wearing a rug around him. He had one of my mom's silk blouse borders for a towel over his shoulder. I thought they looked very nice!
What do you think?

Rangoli: Kasu Mandabam
Created by viji_j86 on 2009-03-16,

I had created one Kasu Mandabam for Lakshmi. This is done by 25 paise coins.
Originally it was done as kasu ther(Ratham). But due to limited space the man who did frame work had taken out two rows of coins from the chakkaram and made as Mandabam. So, the Radam became Mandabam. I am sending this for arts and crafts section.
