I managed to get my commission mammoths finished last night and photographed this morning.
I am really pleased with the way the way they turned out. My favourite is the one made in the black velvet, although it's a shame that she couldn't have tusks - the fabric just frayed so much though: every time I stuck a needle through it, a big hole appeared.
Having said that, I'm not sure white tusks would have suited her. Perhaps tusks made in the same black velvet?
I really must have a go at some other creatures though. I have a wonderful fabric I could make pigs out of (or 'a pig' - it's only a fat quarter); and I would love to try a patchwork giraffe. I guess really, as a bear-maker, I should make a little 'block bear' like that too. I did make a polar bear once, but it was quite a loosely-based design.
Anyway, before all that, the pandas. I'm not having much luck with the eyes at the moment. Never mind - plough on.
