The final set of progress pics, I think he's done! This cutie will be entering the world of Ebay soon...I'll post a link when I list him.
As promised in my last post, he's getting a nose :)
Here I'm making one of the wings, basically just a fat teardrop shape. I'm leaving the pointy end fluffy so that I can attach it to his back.
I'm using just a tiny bit of a lighter colored wool spread across the wings, to give the appearance of that veined look that insect wings have...
Now the wings are done and I'm working on the antennae. Here I'm using jewelers' needle-nose pliers on black craft wire to make a couple 'squigglies', with a Swarovski crystal bicone bead at the top for a bit of sparkle.
He's done, I think! He's making himself comfy on some flowers that I crocheted. I'm wondering...should I give him a stinger??
