I was digging in my faux fur storage and dragged out 3 furs…
After staring at them for some time, i decided, i want to try my new designs a bit smaller then the 30 cm they are now.
So the choice are now this 2 lovely pieces.
the red one is 21 cm by 70 cm and got a 1 cm pile
the brown one is 42 cm by 70 cm and has 2 cm long hair.
I could easily make a 25 cm bear with the red fur … BUT :D
as the hair are so short - i am going to try a 20 cm bear AND a 15 cm Bear out of it.
I spent hours with gimp today to work out a layout plan for the red one.
first i did the 25 cm bear … so much waste - no no … no good :D
then the 20 cm bear … sooo much space left - can it be enough … and then i tried it … moving pieces around and back and forth and back again … and i worked out a way to fit those 2 bears onto the fur AND have it rather symmetric from the pattern on the fur … WOHO :D
now i JUST need to cut out the pattern pieces - and this time i need to work reversed …
Means i cut out the pieces, and lay the large paper with the holes in it onto the backing and trace the lines …
now you kind followers - cross your fingers and wish me luck - i really hope this works as i hope it does :)
