Lapras

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything.  The past few weeks have been pretty busy and my felter was a little slow in getting me what I needed to finish this. When I started Lapras I meant for her to be a little bigger, but after showing the more compact model to my fiance, he said that he thought it made her seem more cute.  I’ll let you be the judges for yourselves, but personally I like my little Lapras! : )

Spike on Head(blue)

Assembly:

Sew all the blue parts of Lapras’ body together.  Check pictures for placement.  I then attached the belly starting from the mouth and sewed my way around.  The bottom parts of the flippers were then attached in any order. (This can even be done before sewing flippers onto body.) Sew on the shell to the back. Position the points of the body like in picture.  (the shell does come out shaped a little awkward but works when sewed on.    Cut out felt and place accordingly.  Also after placing the felt, create eyebrows by chaining as many as needed to cover the top part of the eye.
