Little Ruthie

 Ruthie will be a prairie dog and here’s her armature.  As I look at it I realize that it would be a nice touch – although one that no one would ever see – to add a little heart in the appropriate spot.  Perhaps I could make the heart out of polymer clay, or I could use a glass bead or a button.

The armatures always look weird, and this one is no exception.  I meant to take photos at different stages through the felting but got so carried away that I forgot.

So here’s the finished Ruthie.  I’m in the process of making a paper pattern (I use paper towels and the “trial and error” method) for her slip.  She’s going to have a dress made from fabric salvaged from a vintage feedsack.  Fun!
