Fiber Arts Friday Tentacle Monster Style...

Aside from getting my Chakra Doll crochet pattern up this week.... this doll has been all consuming.  She's not finished, but aside from hair, a tulle tutu and a garter belt she's pretty damn close.  I also have to figure out how to have her on the base that I still have to prep and paint.  Baby steps...

Last night I finished assembling the tentacles, which proved to be dangerous.  My tapestry needle is very sharp and seems larger than it should be.  I'm a little afraid of it.  I also almost leaned onto it yesterday with my neck.  That's the sort of thing that goes down over here in KBG land...  So this morning, I started out with all of these pieces.

I also figured out how to crochet plaque build-up... which amused me to no end. (Twitter friends know...)

This morning I sewed and stuffed and got the whole thing together.  I really love her.  I'm not sure how she's going to sit or stand on the base.  It's going to involved dowels and carpentry skills that I lack for sure.  Once the rest of her is finished and sewn on, I'm sure she'll be awesome.

On another note, I also got a great wholesale order that will be consuming me pretty much exclusively for the next 3 weeks.  More details on that as the deadline approaches.

It's Fiber Arts Friday, so please leave a comment and then head over to Andrea's Blog, Wisdom Begins in Wonder and check out the other Fibery posts!  I guarantee you will learn something interesting.
