I met Beckam at the Alpalca show last month and was was quite taken with him. What a charmer!
After enlarging his photo, and tracing his body parts - they traced onto freezer paper and I pressed under all his pieces. I did eyes and nostrils with fusible (I'm not crazy) using all fusible would work but I don't like doing heavy quilting or thread painting over all that glue so taking the time to turn under is worth it.
Yes, lots of thread
I wanted some hay in his mouth because ....... Well that is what Alpalcas do.
Took some hayish looking yarn and wrapped around floral taped wire, cut a hole on his mouth and sewed it down. The hay came out a bit wierd but then so is Beckam
