I am easily sidetracked. If you read the last post, chock full of plans, you can have a good laugh.
Last night I glued together some cardboard, this morning I sawed some dowels, and played with saran wrap and masking tape.
|Three layers of cardboard glued together with yellow wood glue, and a doll's foot precariously balanced on a sawed up piece of dowel.|
|The sole and foot wrapped in plastic wrap, covered with masking tape, and the uppers drawn on in pencil.|
|The upper cut off and trimmed.|
Then I played with masking tape some more.
|I wrapped my clear Obitsu dog in plastic wrap, then encased him in masking tape.|
|Masking tape shells cut off|
I made a flat pattern by strategically cutting the masking tape shell. I marked the direction of the fur on the shell before I cut it off.
I had enough of beige artificial rabbit fur (a sample I requested from Distinctive Fabrics) to do the head and the tail. I have more of the fake fur on the way.
When I turned the head inside out, it looked like a horrible mistake.
So I groomed the head a little bit. The ears are not very distinct but smoothing some fur up makes them look more plausible. I need to stitch some red felt or something in his mouth. And maybe add a tongue!
and then I draped the poor dog in scraps to get an idea of the finished product.
Then I did it again, because once was not enough.
This one makes me howl with laughter every time I see it.
