Dioramas suck – make stuffed animals instead

I guess you could say I was somewhat inspired by Allison’s diorama post because I’ve been feeling very arts & craftsy lately. I was sitting around playing with some wire, cotton balls, and albino beaver pelt that I had laying around. Suddenly it dawned on me that I could make my own fruity stuffed animal, just like Eric Brandt.

I used the wire to create a frame, or skeleton. Then I kinda folded the beaver pelt around it to make the fur. I carefully stuffed the cottonballs inside the pelt, making sure to distribute them evenly to avoid having a lumpy coat! I then used the bold key to make certain words bold. I definitely ran out of steam by the time I got to the face but maybe, in time, my skill will improve. Admittedly, the mouth is uneven, the nose is just a mess, and one of the eyes didn’t come out right at all. Oh, well! Maybe next time. Anyway, here’s what I came up with:
