Jack and the Dyed Wool

Here's Jack... I finally finished him and made him a walking staff. He wasn't very well balanced without it. He originally was made to sit down but then he kept wanting to stand up so I had to make some adjustments on his finished appearance.

Here's a better view of his face. Kay does such a wonderful job teaching how to make faces. Skip the next photo if you don't want to see any wool genitalia.

I always seem to have to make my figures anatomically correct. And then they never want to wear any clothing. Strange.

Here's the mixed breed wool I dyed for making more cat toys. I am running low and summer season is upon us. I'll have to be diligent and get these made!

Here's a closer look. The colors turned out well except the purple isn't the best. I did really like the limey green one though. I'm sure the kitties will be very happy with their new toys!

This is Falkland wool that I am planning on using to make myself a vest. I hope I dyed enough but I guess I'll just have to make do.

Okay, that shot of Jack from the rear made me spit coffee all over my computer. I love it!

That was funny, lol.
He is a fun character, love his features;)

The falkland wool is beautiful. I got some white to try some dying with, so will see how I do.

Love the dyed wool. I like the bright colors better than pastels too.

The doll looks like a real character. Souns like you took a great class.
