Here it is! My first attempt at turning my sketch into a real toy.
Here is the sketch again, for comparison.
I think its pretty good for the first try. Although, she looks more like a cross between Humpty Dumpty and an M&M than what I'm going for. Wren said it looks like an astronaut, I can see that. Actually, his vision is closer to what I want the finished toy to look like.
I am pleased with how the face came out though. I was reading FutureGirl craft blog and read about her method for tracing a picture on to tear away stabilizer and then embroidering over the top. Brilliant! I used tissue paper from our stash of wrapping supplies and it worked great.
Alright, back to the drawing board, I need to write down my thoughts for changes before they get lost in the chaos that is my mind.
