Stuffies should not be scary and, yes, those legs are centipede-scary, aren't they?
- Obviously the black ribbon legs were a huge mistake. Nothing says centipede like a lot of blacks squiggly legs!
- Also, while I like the fabric for the body, it needs segments. Caterpillars must have segments.
I do like my ribbon antennas, though. I have got to use up some of my overwhelming ribbon collection. Did I really just call it a collection? That's not good. Supply! I meant supply!
This began with me trying to steal Sandra's Hungry-Caterpillar-book-with-stuffy gift idea. I love both of her versions of the caterpillar. You have to check hers out to see how good this might have been if I had just not decided to, once again, reinvent the wheel.
I can't even bring myself to donate this one. It would be cruel. Mine will terrify some poor child who happens upon it lying in the thrift store waiting for it's forever home.
Until someone comes up with a kiddie book about a lovable centipede, this will will have to go the way of all centipedes--hidden in the far depths where they belong.
Well, I just Amazon'd, and there's a Wii game called Centipede Ifestation ... errrrrrrr no, that won't do. There's also a book called Centipede's One Hundred Shoes - that'd be just right! Honestly I don't think he's a fail. I think he's about as much of a fail as my first Cosmo was - not really a fail, just not quite what I (for mine, or you, for yours) envisioned. I'd say you came up with a cute centipede - the only change I would make would be to use more colourful ribbon. The number of legs is fine for a centipede - I would just ... OH I know ... how about rattail for his legs ... single thickness so nobody can ge a finger caught, tie a knot at the end to finish it and for extra texture ... and you could probably get a dozen or more legs on each side, haha!! You might have to make the body a bit longer and skinnier to be more centipedey, but he would go great with the 100 shoes book, LOL!ReplyDelete
