First off, I have been making one of my favorite creatures to make...THE CHESHIRE CAT.
I first begin with a couple of pieces of foil which I form into a small ball for the head and a larger oval shaped foil ball for the body, then I add triangle shaped foil pieces for the ears, and a long, thin shaped piece of foil for the tail. I also form the front paws for the cat. And of course I make indentations for the eyes, a tiny wad of foil for the nose, and poof out the cheeks a bit with foil too.

|THIS IS A VERY ROUGH FIRST LAYER OF CLAY. JUST GETTING THE BASIC SHAPE OF THE CAT.|
|THIS IS MY BOX OF VINTAGE FABRIC EIGHTHS AND MY PETAL PATTERNS CUT OUT OF PAPER TO MAKE FLOWERS.|
|HERE ARE FLOWERS WHERE THE PETALS HAVE BEEN SEWN, TURNED, AND THEN SEWN TOGETHER WITH A RUNNING STITCH ALL AROUND THE BASE OF EACH FLOWER. I WILL ADD MORE PHOTOS AS I PROGRESS.|
