Sammi the squirrel...preparing for winter
I was commissioned to design and make a small squirrel... I spent one night dreaming about the project! The next day I put my dream onto plastic for pattern pieces and then made the squirrel. There were changes along the way, but Sammi turned out pretty much how I visualized him. Though if I make another, I'll probably make more changes! I am especially pleased with his tail which is wired and pose - able!
Sammi is 6.75" tall and jointed arms, legs and head.... weighted to counterbalance his tail and can stand with a little help! Currently he is in a resin log and carries needle felted acorns with real acorn caps.
Now she wants a SKUNK... time for dreams again!?
