Sometimes I don't know why some ideas come to me......like this one:
suddenly I saw a little wooden shoe in my closet....it has been standing there for a while, not knowing what to do with it but I bought it.....maybe the idea was born then?
I'm almost out of fabric and had no time yet to go to my supplier......and if this happens I start looking thrue the stuff I do have.....and found a little piece of off-white viscose. Wooden shoe....viscose.....disc's.....I've got it!
|it is so much easier to stitch the parts from double fabric!|
|I added fray-check before cutting the fabric.....this viscose raffles very much|
|took me 5 minutes per piece to get the fabric to the right side......phew!!!!!|
|adding mini-steelshot with tweezers; do you see the needle?!|
|a little "something" has been born! Hello! stand alone.....|
|one of the best parts is to decorate eventhough I don't think it is easy to decorate : ))) It has a glass-bead from my friend and the head is from mohair|
|ofcourse I still was out of the size eyes......so I took these tiny shoe-button eyes and varnished them|
|varnished the eyes again so little one is drying! still in progress.......needs shading....and a hug (me too!)|
btw: I used the free pattern for Mousy but left the darts out.....
Thanks for your visit and I'll be back soon!
well...well.....in the last 1 1/2 hour the temperature dropped with 7 degrees! it feels much better! rain!!!!! we need rain!!!!!
watch out!!!!! jump!!!!! at least that's what I have to do now all the time! Little polar-bear driving from the left to the right, very fast, having a lot of fun!!! look at that!!!!!
|there he goes again!!!|
Let me show you what all happened here:
|dear dear hubby helping me! making little pieces of wood for the wheels (we used a chopstick for the wood!)|
|and a little hole on top of the nose for the flag.......btw afterwards I removed the yellow ring....didn't like it!|
|it took some time before we found the right nails but we could solve all this by adding a smaller disc! Tada!!!!|
|where would I be without him???!!!!|
|the hole for the flag AND the flag! I made it from a lovely paper and glued it double with a stick inside (sate-stick this time!)|
|and a little rope.......|
|jump!!!!! here he goes again : )))))))|
there is one tiny thing: the bottom of the shoe is not equal and I didn't notice so, if the ship-car is on my desk you can see one wheel is not touching the floor.....but, as this wooden shoe is meant as a toy and supposed to be made by litte polar-bear.....I think it is perfectly OK!
Polar-bear measures appr. 6 cm / 2 1/2 inches without the conical hat; the wooden shoe is appr. 10 cm / 4 inches. Polar-bear has been shaded.
Don't ask me why I made this......NO idea but it was a real fun-project!!!!!
Thank you for following my project! Now......what shall I do next???????? aha......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
