Yesterday, in the aftermath of Boston’s big blizzard, I started beading a new dog pin for my Etsy shop!
Based on a sketch of a West Highland White Terrier (aka. Westie), I cut out a few pieces of felt & stitched them together. Then, using Japanese size 15 seed beads, I stitched on my first layer of beadwork. The grays & black are meant to be shading which will hopefully show through after I add some beaded fringe for hair. I also need to add a tail & maybe a collar! How do you think he looks so far? I think he looks a bit like a polar bear cub! 😀
Also, just a few updates since my last post:
