Back to the drawing board for this guy and his claws! Tonight I tried to add some felted claws to this little guy's foot but things didn't go so well.
I used a piece of hand felted felt and it was a combination of being too fluffy and the piece not being big enough to sew...I think. I am going to get some regular felt from Joann's Fabrics tomorrow and start over. I think the thinner, tougher regular "felty" felt will work better.
|I cut a row of pointy "claws" from a small piece of hand felted felt I had. I also cut the bottom of this guy's foot to insert the felt.|
|I tacked the "claws" in place...nope, just not what I had in mind.|
|I will try again with regular store bought "felty" felt.|
And one more thing -- I just have to mention how much I love being a member of the Northville Art House Exhibit Committee -- I love each one of my fellow committee members so much. We finalized the 2014 calendar year tonight -- it is a really solid and exciting line up of shows! Everybody has such wonderful ideas and is so eager to help. I am so happy and proud to be a part of this!
