Default Board-Wide Challenge - my sewing entry

If you looked in the project showcase, you may have seen this guy already. Sorry about that, but I'll use a different photo! I won't repeat the details of why I made this creature. But I will say that I had no tutorial or pattern whatsoever. I made this thing totally by the seat of my pants.

In case you haven't looked at the project showcase, this beautiful creature is a Zergling. The same creature that I want to recreate in felt.

I started out with felt, printed out pictures and some terrible sketches.

And got to work making the body.

Then forming the legs.

Then I added some embellishments. And noticed areas that needed tweaking like the awkward way his legs splay out.

So I tweaked and added final touches like a face and claws and ....

Ta da!!!!

He turned out pretty cool!

I blog a little about my crafting. I'd love to see you there. Please visit Crafty Distractions and say hello.

My daily project was completed on January 25, 2012, but you can still visit my blog The Daily Turtle if you would like to see my adventures making or photographing a turtle every day for a year.

I cannot master what I have not tried.

Strangers are just friends that we haven't met yet.
