I never used to write down patterns as I went until people started asking me to make a critter again. I haven’t sold anything yet but hope that this design week will get me a little more recognized and people telling their friends. So hopefully Fiona the Flamingo will be the first TBC design to sell. Please tell all your friends to at least join TBoutiqueCritters Commumnity group to at least tell me what “critter” to design next.
I was really fortunate with Fiona to not have many trouble spots. Most of the time was actually spent on how the legs should look (ie- realistic, comical, standing, sitting, etc.). So in the end the easiest way won out and sitting “vogue” style won out. Thus the reason for also having to put long eyelashes and “eyeliner”, as one viewer put it, on her eyes. My DH actually thinks that her feathers look like a type for fur/feathered stole. So Fashion Diva Fiona the Flamingo is finished and here are her glamour shots!
Well Fiona is looking great and I ALWAYS have something negative to say about the critters that I design but I think she’s going to be one of my fav’s!!! Her feathers and lower beak were attached last night. I started working on her legs but the hour was too late to finish. She should be finished for tomorrow “unveiling” though. Thanks for all of your comments on her progress, they’re always fun to see!!!
