Let me introduce to you Mr. Cat and his best friend Mr. Fish:
He is going to Ireland to live with Mark as my part of an art trade and I'll be getting a drawing.
When I was thinking about what to make as an accessory for the photo shoot it occurred to me I should make something from Mark's drawings and I chose this "little" fish he drew here.
As you can see Mr. Cat is fully pose-able; he is needle-felted with wire armature underneath. Mr. Fish is just an ordinary toy so he really doesn't need to be able to move, right? He was sewn from white felt first and then I needle-felted the colors onto him. I added black stitches because they were on the drawing and I wanted to add those scales too but I realized that would look too busy so I skipped that part.
I still have to finish the box he'll be traveling in but I wanted to post his photos as soon as I could.
I'm trying to post my works in a group called "A Piece A Week - 2013" over at FB and this will be my submission for week 6.
