Brrrr... My house is freezing. Socks just aren't enough today. I need to make myself some slippers.
So now that he's been received by my swap partner, I can post my little sugar skull felt bear! (It's not of my own design, but is inspired by this, which was inspired by something else, so I have no idea where the original idea came from). He took quite a few hours to make, but the end result turned out pretty awesome!
The thing that took the longest was all the embroidery and handstitching the bones. The little scarf didn't take very long to crochet, though. That was nice.
Here he is w/o the scarf on. The tricky part with the bones was that I had to stitch them on before sewing the bear's body... So it was a little bit tough to get the placement just right. Luckily, my new sewing machine is loads more maneuverable than my old one, so it didn't give me a ton of trouble like that angora jellyfish I made a while back.
Here he is pre-bones and pre-assembly. Happy Monday, everyone :)
