After a difficult delivery 'Zuri' is finally born!

 I have finally booked my trip to the UK today!!!
I'll be exhibiting at the TEDDIES 2012 on the 9th of September and I am looking forward to it!
Like to know more about it? See this link: http://www.hugglets.co.uk/festivalindex.php

Voting for the first rounds of the URSA Awards has ended on the 29th of July. Fingers crossed I will appear in the final rounds. I hope so. It depents on how many votes I got for Biscuit, Patrick & Rudi and Howie.
If  I will appear in the final rounds, will you vote for me again? :)

And last but not least:

Well... today I finally finished my latest creations. I must say she was a pain in the ***! 
Her legs were horrible, did not want to cooperate at all!! And then I forgot about the hair in the neck... Being a perfectionist, I could not leave that out... but: she is finally born! 
I love her eye lashes, they are so soft :)

 Zuri is a OOAK giraffe baby made of a soft giraffeprint-fabric. She is 14 inches / 36 cm tall. She is wired and filled with synthetic wool and plastic pallets. She was not easy to work on because her legs did not want to cooperate. It took me at least two more days to finish her. 

Hope you like her!

Hugs, Melanie

Meet Jobo my new 4" - 10 cm tall mini bear!

First of all bad news:  The TBAAF Awards might be cancelled for this year. :( The voting form providers site from TBAAF who we use to host the awards has been badly hacked and taken down, and have just discovered all the TBAAF Awards voting pages and information has been completely lost... Nooooo! I hope they can fix it! 

Good new: I have just made my first mini bear. :)
 This mini bear is a little less than 4 inches - 10 cm tall. He is filled with plastic pellets and polyester filling. He has a needle felted face and paws and his nails, teeth, tongue and honey pot are made of polymer clay. He is actually my first try of mini bear with that kind of details in needle felting. I did not realize it would be that much work... It's even more work. :) But since I am a great fan of details and time-taking, undoable projects it was just my thing! :D

I hope you like him.

Oh, please don't forget to vote for the URSA Awards!

Hugs,  Mel

I hope you like him.
