This little dear started out as just a panda with a septum ring. I sent the picture to my customer and he said “It’s really cute! Can you make it a zombie?” XD So here we have zombie panda with a septum ring! I’m proud of it. It wasn’t intentional but he totally ended up the with the Awesome Face. As you can see Zombie Panda is jointed. I followed Marie Spaulding’s advice and made them tighter than when I made my string joint kit, and it worked great, so now I need more waxed thread.
This is my last project using Peace Fleece black & white wool batt. I ran out and am replacing it with merino cross wool batt. Peace Fleece is great for starting out if you’re trying to build a studio of colors, since it’s so cheap. But I find it a bit annoying to work with because of the inclusion of mohair- I find myself having to constantly pull and trim these long hairs sticking out of my work, and the more I work on it the fuzzier it gets. So, I am going to go with the merino cross wool that came with my string joint bear kit from Living Felt. It has a really smooth finish. I will still continue to use certain Peace Fleece colors as I can’t find them anywhere else, such as Shaba Green and Moscow Magic Pink. I am also very interested in trying Kay Petal’s Felt Alive wool batt, but I don’t need any of the colors she has available right now (I love ordering from her though, she always sends me extra stuff).
That’s all for now. I need to get cracking on the four black cat pins ordered yesterday!
