The first tests with pulled toes

yesterday and last night (yea again a sleepless night) i was working on a arm and a leg.
Sadly i was reading at Joanne Livingston`s blog AFTER i sewn the first patches on … oh well :D
But, i think i am on the right track.
Using my loved cheap faux fur I made a arm - the picture doesn’t really show the failure. the toes pads are to small … but i got a second arm to make, so nothing lost yet.
The leg is not so bad… it does look like it is not flat enough, but this might be because the hair are so thick.
and i do like the toes, even when i didn’t do them right :D
They are about 3mm around smaller then the foot sole, so they are to small.
Again, i got an other foot to do, so nothing really lost.
i got the body and head cut out already, just some sewing to be done … “just” :D
so either later today, or maybe tomorrow i show some more pictures
Depending when i hit bed….


  1. Your toes look perfect. I would not worry about them being slightly small than the pads. I can not even see it.

  2. One more thing, you say your feet are not flat enough. When I do the sculpting in the foot pad, I bring the needle up far back in the top of the foot. When you go back down and bring it up again it will flatten out the top of the foot. Does that make sense?
