|This is the mat. Took a long time to cut, heat bond, and applique all the things on it.|
|Cute little fish was difficult only because|
the material I chose was so hard to sew.
|Lobster is made from a shiny material with|
bias tape legs. This was very difficult to
turn and stuff.
|This sea star was hard to keep it's shape|
because the material was too stretchy.
It is very soft and since sea stars are not
always really evenly shaped, he works.
|My seahorse is made from felt so that I did|
not have to turn him. Each band of color
had to be heat bonded and then zigzagged
around to cover any spaces and to hold in
|This little turtle is made from a very soft|
fleece material that stretched a lot when
stuffing. It was hard to make his
appendages look alike, He really looks
like he is swimming.
|This is the dolphin that holds all the animals inside. I wanted to fit the mat, too, but he isn't big enough. Instead, he can just be wrapped with the mat for storage.|
Now that all this is done, I need to start working on the costumes and scenery things for the Christmas Pageant. I have a lot to get done with that. I still have Christmas presents to get finished, too, so there is a lot to work on. Running out of time to get it all done, but I am sure that I will. When I set my mind to something, I do it.
