Just finished this cutie up last night.
May 4th is Star Wars Day, so an Ewok seemed quite appropriate.
I haven't made one of these in a bit.
This time I used some new fabric I scored at a big ole rummage sale I went to over the weekend.
The fabric is (I think) faux suede. I think it's faux because the back had white cottony fusing on the back, like you see on plastic table clothes. But it did smell a little bit like leather once I got pawing it.
It was tricky to work with. Sewing wasn't so bad. I don't think I had the best needle in the machine since I could hear punching but I wasn't going far (that's how I think of sewing, like mileage!) so I just talked the machine through it.
Turning it was a bit more of a challenge, complicated by my not leaving the turning hole wide enough so I had to get the seam ripper after it. The ears were a bit of work but not too bad.
The cowl is felt. The face is embroidered and marker. Hanger is just some ribbon.
Tail has a cute little mushroom. I've had this sucker for over a YEAR just waiting for the best time to use it.
True confession, I bought it at Hobby Lobby before I was aware of what a sucky company they are (google it if you want) so I feel a little bit guilty about that. But only a little since I got it on clearance. Heaven help me, Hobby Lobby has some good clearance but I'll never spend one more cent there as long as I live (just like Chic-fil-A).
But enough politics, it's time to get to work on some new projects. Like those darn bunnies. I did get them all stitched up last night so I plan to finish them tonight. Let me just leave with this. Fleece sucks.
OH, and this ewok is going to ITALY. I'm so excited about that.
