Wrapping the Seagull
The seagull is being wrapped in white felt. This will smooth all the lumps and bumps out of him-- he is a he.
I wish wrapping in felt whatever colour would smooth my lumps and bumps.
He looks a bit odd but I am hoping it will all come together in the end.
I didn`t want to make a stuffed fabric bird, I didn`t want him looking a bit Walt Disneyish, nor did I want a perfect replica of a seagull. I couldn`t make that anyway.
Hope the vision inside my head works.
If you have followed my blog from the begin you will know I like texture and this is a method I have used before to construct a textured fabric.
Strips of hand dyed materials a selection of threads and my embellisher.
This will become the wings. Trust me but keep your fingers and toes crossed that this all works.
Look in next week to see the bird, at last , coming together and about time everyone is saying.
I can hear you.
