What's in the bag? Hm...
A peacock! Isn't he adorable? I finished him today, two days after my mom's birthday (which is what he was intended for), but she didn't mind. My hands are still sore....3 straight days of sewing (all day), 2 days of trying to sketch a pattern that looked somewhat realistic, and a day or two or thinking it up.
My family greeted him with love and suggested that I make them to sell, but after adding up the labor and supply costs, I really don't think anyone would buy one, because I think he would be around $150. Plus, since I hand stitched the tail details, I really don't think I want to make another one! He's so gorgeous though, so I'm glad I made him.
He has eyelids! And lovely beak and feather details:
I was going to make it so his tail could be pulled up as well, but that didn't work out. Not that there's any girlies to impress. Although I was thinking about making him a peahen... I don't want him to be lonely!
