Artists don't make objects. Artists make mythologies.
- This is my first mixed media plushie
- The pattern is my own original free hand design (inspired after looking at many many many bird images)
- I made it in three days
- I'm not sure I'm done with it, I'll let it sit a while then see if I feel if it needs more embellishing
Lower Bodybasque stitch. I also made a beaded flower with a pearl in the center of each petal.
Overall, I am ecstatic that my pattern turned out exactly how I imagined once it was stitched and stuffed! I love the felted mixed media look, and will be doing more and experimenting more. I wonder if my bird looks completely amateur/first-time to those who have been doing it forever? LOL :)
