Above: Head waaayyy too big!!! She looks like a lamb. Felted head = fail, back to the drawing board!
Above: Front view, lopsided ears, eyes set too far into head and not even. Start over with a new head asap!
Now onward to the correct sized head!
Above: Red Riding Hood is going to visit Grandma. She has just finished baking oatmeal cookies, Grandma's favorite and has neatly placed them in her basket.
Above: RRH Mouse's head is 100% wool. Ears & eyelids are wool felt. Cape is felt.
Above: Little Red Riding Hood stopped by Patrick Gnome's house to give him some. Everybody knows that gnomes love oatmeal cookies.
Above: Back view. Tail is wrapped wire. Hood does not pull up. I tacked it so it would lay down.
Above: Nose and mouth are thin strands of wool felted down.
Above: Tiny little dress has red flowers on it. You cannot see the hand stitched collar, but it is there.
Plans are to make a wool Grandma's cottage pincushion. She stands at 3 1/4" tall. I have also sketched a Robin Hood with a tree pincushion, maybe mouse dressed up like a pig for The Three Pigs, along with a house pincushion, and several other storybook characters. I am sure that by now you have guessed that I love themed stuff.
