It had to be done. That drawing was just demanding to be patchwork. Hand pieced silk and cotton over freezer paper templates – and very fiddly.
When it has legs it will be going somewhere.
It’s ALREADY going somewhere. How awesome is that?!? As in…FAR OUT!
It’s wonderful right now…didn’t miss the legs because I thought he was wading through deep snow.
I love it!! Can’t wait to see where he is going!
like like like like LOVE
Love it..even without legs it looks as if it is going somewhere Karen! x lynda
Love your beast, Karen ! It must have been hard using freezer paper: not very “stiff” but the advantage is that you can iron it on ….
(múch better than all those “red-nose” reindeer ….)
On this scale (most of these pieces are about half-an-inch square-ish) freezer paper is plenty sturdy enough, Els. And yes, being able to iron it on is a HUGE advantage.
you had to do it didnt you, two things come to mind
1.klee does some birds quite similar to this go on .make a familly and
2. have you ever seen elmer the elephant?

I love Klee – one of my favourite artists. Not too familiar with Elmer the Elephant, but I did spend a lot of time drawing animals – especially elephants – as a child…
PS thanks 🙂
I love your colorful horse – amazing technicolor beast. Wonderful.
perfect. glad you’re doing some animals with this set.
It looks gorgeous already!

Really wonderful. The curved piecing is fantastic. So animistic!
