Here she is, a creepy cat like creature and her three equally creepy children.
Yeah, that mouth is creepy. I got that mouth fabric (and the packet of plastic dog noses) at the sally army fabric sale. The front fabric is a batik and the back is a felted wool sweater.
Watch out for her stinger.
The tail is just a roll of faux fabric with a jaggy, tooth-like bead at the top. I got those beads to make a lantern fish (using socks, from the sock toy book I've shown off before) but never got around to it. So I used a few for this project.
The boy doesn't have a stinger (or maybe he had one and it got bit off in a fight? he is sporting a kind of eye patch so we're not sure what the story is there)
And the baby. No tail or stinger just yet. But s/he does have a little lure/toy. Does s/he lure prey in so the family can sting it? Hmm, maybe.
All the babies are made from cotton fabrics. I received the creepy baby faces as an extra from some swap eons ago and wondered just what the hell I was ever going to do with them (besides cringe and ponder tossing them in the goodwill bag). HAH, I found the perfect use for them.
The baby faces are hot glued on, which turned out really well. I was worried it wouldn't work out.
Bye, creepy family. Have fun doing whatever creepy things you do.
What's up next? Disney themed patches. It's a series where we work through the alphabet. I have A,B, and C in progress (C is almost done) and have ideas all picked for D, E, and F. I also have to work on some Fluff stuff and I want to get a quilt made this month. Oh and that tutorial for the bacon and eggs plushies. Got to get busy!
