For the last few weeks I've been working on my commissioned piece. It's taking longer than I thought which with me is par for the course. I always forget how much time is required to create something brand new that I've never done before, especially a soft sculpture piece.
The body is done and is stuffed and the back legs are complete and sewn on. The front legs are done but I need to figure out how to sew them on without messing up my embroidery. So while that issue is slowly churning away in the back of my brain I'm working on the head. I had to redo the pattern for the head and make it slightly larger and add an additional gusset to get the shape right.
Now I'm trying to decide if I should do plastic animal eyes or my own sassy packrat eyes style. It's always a work in progress even when I "think" I've got everything figured out.
Here's 2 wips that don't give away too much, hopefully.
I blurred the last pic a little so you can't see the details too clearly. I promise you'll see the finished piece as soon as the client does.
