I join the chorus saying "You are super cool!"  Totally send that to ReadyMade!!  You should get featured on here too!  I just told my hubby that sometimes I think I'm super creative and then I see something like this and I am not even in the same ballpark!!  Continue to be encouraged because you've got the creative super-gene!!

Love wins.

this would be a great gift for the little girl's room!

nice work! i can't believe it hasn't been sold yet. i bet if you put it on ebay, it would sell in a blink of an eye. how long did it take to make, btw?

This is such a huge compliment to me, seeing all the talent around here....*bows*. Grin

Seriously, it took a little experimenting to figure out, and a bit of investment....AKA...wasting materials...LOL!

The actual project took a good 3-4 days solid. 3-4 days of inhaling fake fur scrapnel...pissing off the husband...pissing off myself and wanting to throw it in the trash...at least a case of beer and a few packs of smokes. Wink  I'm not joking, although its a bit funny now.

Whats going on with piggy at the moment is I am asking a whoopin $500 bucks for it...well...ya know, materials $$$$$, shrapnel...hangovers ect.  Then put it in a retail store...that simply doubles the price. Undecided

I simply couldn't sell it for less, considering the cost of materials and labour....and if ya do the math I get paid more at my day job. Tongue  So I'm defeating the purpose I guess.

I need some rich people that like wierd stuff....do they even exsist?  LOL!

hopefully someday i can add "rich" as a descriptive word to myself. haha. anyway that is so AWESOME... with a capital awesome. i sent the link to my fiancee and now he is hell bent on making something similar with me. sort of a group craft project. they have some really large life sized animal forms on there that i think could really be made into a tacky and an amazing coffee or end tables. god our house is gonna be weird. hooray!

I agree that Ebay would be one good way to go.  Using some really good keywords would be essential though because you need to get to the particular niche audience you want.

(With Ebay, you wouldn't have to worry about a 50% markup too.)

This is really one of the coolest things I have EVER seen!  I just logged on to get a catalog, and I'm going to try to make one for myself.  I've always loved the freakiness of a bear rug, but won't buy one that is real.  This is a great way to replicate it!
