is next…

cuddle bug!

he’s still a work-in-progress, but i only have to decide if i want to put his wings on or not. he’s made from recycled/felted sweaters of various styles and colors, and this time i put him together by both machine and hand (my past animals have been all by hand, but i actually got some good results using the various stitches from my machine this time).

you can see his wings in the first photo. i like how the blanket stitching sort of ruffled them, but i’m still not sure if i want to put them on or not. i also like how his polka dots came out…i basically stuck the machine on quilting stitch and moved it around a lot. you can’t tell from the pic, but it’s blue and white thread. if i do end up using the wings i’ll attach them at his neck.

here’s his actual state right now:

he’s got a red smile and his tongue is sticking out on the underside of his head. i like how his eyes came out; the blue and yellow embroidery thread compliment the material from his body quite nicely.

i’m just not sure what it is that i don’t like about him. maybe the squareish head? i don’t know. i shall contemplate. nad hopefully have an answer for this problem before i’m supposed to give it to finn for christmas…
