and now a tail by LilleahWest
and now a tail
well this took all day, adjusted the thing like 8 times.

this may be the last WIP for a while as what is left to do for the body is the jersey mesh back with straps and then sew everything that is still pinned, including the millions of seams in that tail X____X

done for the day by LilleahWest
done for the day
I got the leg and belly colors all sewn to each other and all body parts pinned around the padded dummy.

I need to rest my wrist now so I will figure out the jersey mesh back and tail tomorrow
Loading...
Just threw the bobbin case again on the "first machine" (both are old PFAFFs, the one I bought first is a newer model so I call it the first machine not the old one yadda yadda) the needle goes down and hits metal and I can tell the bobbin is going it at a different angle than normal and ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH

I mean, shoot, didn't I JUST go through this in the spring? Luckily when I got it fixed I had my other machine and once the first machine was fixed I got the second one serviced and oiled and so I can run it now while I YET AGAIN take the first machine in... which will not happen till Monday, and then I have to wait 1-2 weeks for it to get fixed...

WHICH IS WHY I HAVE TWO MACHINES

YOU KNOW HOW MUCH WORK WOULD HAVE SAT IDLE WHILE I WAITED 1-2 WEEKS FOR THE FIRST MACHINE TO GET FIXED!!!

*just watch something will happen with the second machine now that I said that.
the next step - the not so fun part by LilleahWest
the next step - the not so fun part
here we have the pieces for body, one leg is pinned one is not. The back I still have not patterned/done anything for because since it goes under the wings and is not seen I am going to do jersey mesh with a series of nylon straps to support the tail.

I have been working since 10am it is now after 1:30 and this is all I have to show for myself 8C

As some one commented yesterday the process of patterning, cutting and sewing sucks because it looks like you did so much less at the end of the day then say, a day of making a head frame (like yesterday)

*goes to sit and baste (pre-sew) these together all nice and seamless and then machine sew them.

PS I have to use a variegated kinda stripey brown now too (what I used for the back of the moose) as I realize I won't have enough of the jumble brown if I don't use it... I cannot ever get more of the jumble brown D8 it was bought from someone on DA who found it locally years ago. So now the stripey brown is for the inner legs and upper arms.

ready for fur by LilleahWest
ready for fur
lengthened the muzzle, finished the shaping with foam, attached horns, mounted to helmet, added straps that will buckle to body under the neck ruff to help pull the weight back and keep the head from slipping forward.

While progress the last 2 days has been amazing this is when things slow down, the actual patterning and sewing of the head, tail, stilts and body take foooooreeeeevvvvvverrrrr 8C

So  GG me, I sent you a note a while back asking if you were able to work with a specific kind of creature.  I had even clicked and browsed your website about it but I was not able to find an answer... But then I went to the site again and right on the landing page BAM. There's a picture of a dragon theme fursuit right there. Question answered! :D

Keep up all dat awesome work!

Question: It seems like you do commissions for animal/fur suit stuff, is that right? Asking for an angry feline friend of mine...
