Hay Craftster,
This is my first post and incidentally first venture into the glamorous and dangerous world of sewing.

He took me about a week and a half to sew, a week to plan out. It's all self designed and you can't tell from the pics but he's a little crooked on one side and one ear is too big.

The fabric I used is from those little quilt samplers that cost about a dollar or two. Beware though, it's really crappy fabric but I liked the patterns so much I used it anyway. Hopefully it won't come apart in a month or two.

This partially a response-gift to my BEE EFF who brought me back many things in his travels around the world (particularly a wooden toy mouse from Scotland) and partially something i've been meaning to do for a long time.
 
Hilariously, I am:
HALF WAY DONE
but I am happy to get the body finished, so I'm happily posting the results here.

 The rest of the project involves knitting a small hat, sewing a thick coat, a backpack filled with survival things: flask, CA flag, a hankie from his sweetheart, etc etc...

the rest will be updated to this post. But for now, enjoy!





detail of the underside of the tail: thistles, it's a scottish thing.



Thanks for lookin!

first formal project, really. I've messed with scraps years ago...but working on this I was VERY VERY careful and painstakingly slow. I messed up a set of ears and legs...so that helped me get it down. When I got right down to it, working and drawing up plans, it took roughly two weeks. But if you count the time thinking up ways to do this without a pattern, it took much longer.

Thanks to everyone for all the kind words! I'm really excited to finish this. Hopefully everything else won't take so long after this point.

Thanks again, cheers all :3
