I need to sew down my stash of fulled sweaters, and for inspiration I am using a wacky coloring book from the early 60s. So far I only have made two, one from the cover, the other from the letter "T":

I tried to wire his tail, but I don't think it was very successful.

The cover animal is a sort of psycho bunny:

And here is the coloring book:

Most of the cover animals are not actually in the book, although the tiger is. I think I might make the Yak next.

eta: I made the monkey from the cover instead.  (Yak is still on the list, though)

monkey under construction:

i used a dowel to stuff his tail, which is 4 feet (~1.3 m) long.

 Grin I love them so much you totally captured them completely!! Also since the cover doesn't show the tiger's tail (and because is so cute) I think it works perfectly!!  Wink

there is always new crazy things going on at our website!!

these are fantastic, and the psycho bunny's hilarious Cheesy attaching all the stripes must have been time consuming - but so worth it!

Nice! And what a cool place to find inspiration.

« Reply #5 on: March 21, 2010 02:28:26 AM »

These really capture the look of the book!
I'm really hoping you'll do the bird next.

Yea, the tiger is mine, mine, mine (I claimed him in the Shop the Swap swap)! I promise I'll give him a good home, ptarmic. Grin

Any plans for the monkey? I'd claim him in hot minute!
