Oonah.......


Here's me with a huge moth I made when I enlarged the pattern....I couldnt resist making one this big I just wanted to see if I could do it. Cant beat the old style overhead projectors for this.
Shes called Oonah and she has a beautiful white fur body and carpet for wings so shes quite heavy! 

It was not easy to sew the carpet but like most things I get really obsessed with them and need to get them finished so that its out of my system.
I'm not going to sell her as I'm very attached to her but since the pattern worked out at some point will make some friends for her....when my fingers have healed a little!

  8. It's so nice to see the mister, creator of such wonderful creatures. Hi. It was fun to be able to enlarge this photo and see all of Ooonah's details. She looks just like a loving pet strapped on your arm like that. She's stunning.
