So I have made the bodies a bit shorter and a lot fatter. Some new wing shapes too. I like them more than the other ones.
Also some moths made from velvet which I haven't done before.
I have a love /hate thing with velvet. It is beautiful and you can age it fabulously with sandpaper and graters etc. However I love to really pack my things as tightly as I can.
I like really firm bases and shapes and often the velvet will just tear of spilt at the seams.
I sew alot with polyester so the seams themselves don't go it next to the seams generally.
I know the solution is to now pack them as tight.
But I get carried away with just a little more stuffing!
