Argh! My Back!

He has some spikes now and his wings are sewn to his body, a little crooked but it looks fine. It is really hard to get the wings to match up 100%, haven't been able to do it yet. I guess I could hand stitch the whole thing but it would take forever. I do like sewing by hand, just constantly stabbing myself in the finger. :p

The white spikes are 2 felt pieces sewn together with pink thread so they are not so plain. Used felt because it is hard enough on my machine going through 6 layers of fuzzy fabric, adding 2 more might kill it :(

I probably would have had him finished but I wasn't paying attention and sewed 2 pieces together that shouldn't have been together so had to use a seam ripper to separate them. Can't actually rip the seam or I end up with shredded fabric so it took over an hour. :/

Hoping for some sun this weekend so I can get some nice pictures of him outside when he is done. :)

I giggled at the 'label' at the end, "wildlife".
