This little guy (8"x8"x8") took me longer than I thought it would, but I also wasn't constantly working on it. In fact, there were many moments when I could have been working on it, but didn't. Then with the whole ear debacle, the project just kept dragging on and on.
So on a very laid back Saturday night I began the finishing stitches - I added the eyes and closed up the face. I like when the animals don't have mouths and as you can see this little guy doesn't have one.
Of course, none of my projects ever turn out 100% perfect, but I think these imperfections give the pieces some character. Notice the wobbly side of his face and if you saw a straight on shot of him you would notice that his ears are not quite even.
That's not too terrible, right?
What a little darling!
Also, I suppose I could have made his trunk a little larger. Oh well! Am I the only one who has project mishaps?
