steady progress on my hand sewn creature
Today I figured out how I wanted to do the hands/fingers/arms for my creature for the Holly Dolly fundraiser auction.
I found the very last bits of orange and white striped gloves and made fingers out of the cut up pieces.
I cut up a tank top (that my sister kindly donated) by folding it twice and cutting all the pieces together (like Suzanne showed me). Then I drew my pattern on the two parts and now I'm going to pin and seam them. But I also need to figure out how to attach the fingers...inside or outside...and how long I want the arms to be.
The fingers and arms waiting for the next steps.
This fabric changes color with your body temperature (or sunlight, etc.) -- my sister had a small business selling printed t-shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops, etc. of various horse designs. This is one of the leftover shirts.
I asked her if she could spare one that changed dramatically and yay -- she had an orange-to-yellow shirt! It's the color(s) I was hoping for!
I think this will be a pretty cool added feature for my Holly Dolly creation.
