I FOUND IT! Of all places...on top of the stripping room in my barn. Some IDIOTS who shall remain nameless placed four totes up there and thank goodness had the common sense to tape the lids shut or ever rat in the County would have been eating my pelts and my Suede. For those of you who have not seen it...this is the beaded Suede that I took a tad over 8 months to bead.....I have to go back and look at my records for an exact count but there are at least 25,000 beads on him....
For size reference...this is the beadwork on the whole deer hide before he was cut out
All that remains is the beading around the edges, punch holes around it and lace it with sinew to the hoop for the shield and then add Suede's molted sickle feathers, plus his splash son, Thor's sickle feather and beads to the sides.
I also got this brillant idea last night...my little d'Anver rooster I acquired (well emotionally stole from Cynthia and later physically took), Rufus, is such the Little Man as most d'Anvers are...so I decided I wanted to make him a vest...for the stylish, discriminating rooster with little man syndrome hahahahahaha here is the pattern and the picture of the prototype which has been cut out but not modified yet...Pics of course will follows after Rufus is wearing his "Little Man Vest"...I think I will copyright that name LMAO
The pattern is for a vest for a stuffed chicken toy hahahaha
The prototype cut out
