new character… iYa

starting the Iya character from the dream sequence...

starting the Iya character from the dream sequence...

not finished yet… making a black crochet ‘skin’ layer and then strands of fluffy textured yarn will be added (bit like latch hook technique) and then trimmed to different lengths… this will take some time though.

I still have to think how I’m going to do the eye… do I want it to blink and move? also the ‘feet’ are actually spheres… I’ll add a sketch of it soon.

I started with wire… twisted to make it stronger, then wrapped wadding around… then added some felt to hold it all together – it has a gusset sewn on the belly which has a long thin bag of plastic pellets to help weigh it down… otherwise it would probably roll over when the eye has been added.

Will update as I get to each new part…
