I am always amazed at where inspiration can come from. This past week, my husband and I were watching the Michael Palin documentary about the Sahara Dessert, and up came this wonderful shot of a great camel. My sweet husband immediately paused the show so that I could use my phone to take a photo of the TV screen….
Next, I covered the photo with a piece of “overhead projector” paper and traced this out with a sharpie……
I picked out some fabrics and fused these three pieces together, traced the basic lines with a blue washable pen…..
At this point, my work life has taken over and I haven’t had time to get back to him, but I cant wait for a few minutes to add a bit more personality to him.
It is a bit daunting to work on because I know that I can so easily ruin the picture by simply using the wrong thread or shading the wrong area!! Having said that I am doing the most important thing……
Hope you are having fun too!!
