Oh, hello! Welcome back to TBT.
I overcame my fear of butchering Scragg’s right ear and made quite a bit of progress this week so I’m excited to share! 🙂
If you’ve been keeping up, you’ll know I was apprehensive of adding a second ear since the first one came out so well, but I had to just bloody well do it. Otherwise I’ll never reach expert level!
So I did it. First I had to pin it in place so they lined up as evenly as possible:
Once I got it where I wanted it I used tiny stitches to attach it firmly:
I did my best to squish it and mold it to look like the first one. It was a little challenging but in the end I was so happy with how the ears turned out that I went ahead and added his eyes, too!
(the angle makes the new ear look bigger than it is.. okay maybe I better squish it back into a more rounded shape)
That’s a bit better. It’s a work in progress, obviously.
It’s fun to see his personality emerge as I add each facial feature. Next I will be adding steel shot and contouring his face more before I attach it to his body. I have all of his body parts ready to stuff and stitch together so it shouldn’t be long before good ole’ Scragg is done and on the shelf with Freddy. Woo! 🙂
Then I want to blow up this pattern and make a bigger bear on my own.
Until then, happy crafting!
