I think this guy might be close to done (if not all the way done). Yay!
He doesn't look much like what I half-thought he might look like when we started out together. Today he let me know how he wanted his hands finished. I chose the look of his feet and (what turned out to be) cuffed pants. I am very pleased with today's work. Very.
|"These...cut the tips off of theeeeeese...they will fit...trust me."|
|The edge of his hand/arm "before".|
|First hand with fingers...or claws.|
|He was right...they did fit.|
|Second hand...I finally caught on how to tame the edge of the clipped part after six fingers...seven and eight look better.|
|This is what I ended up with after about seven different looks...I had a couple of leftover fingers from the gloves that his head is made of.|
|I cut some of the machine stitched hem and folded it over and stitched it together...for me, those are teensy stitches...crampy hands after that bit!|
|But I like the result very much -- to me it looks like his paws/feetys are made of the same material as his head and his orange pants have finished cuffs...the fabric comes close to matching.|
|Ta-daaaaaa -- I think he might be done!|
If I do any more to him it will just be little tweaks I think...I really like him a lot.
