Al’s Pals

So, as you can see from following my instagram feed, I have been churning away on all sorts of fun stuff.

I finished making all six of the red Miss Kate wallets!  They all have a little something different about them.

I started working more on Al’s pals, which after the bunnies I made, I decided to make my own pattern.  Which, as most things do, started on a post it.

So I got hard to work, doodling until these little guys looked right.  Then I made demo number 1:

I liked how the body turned out round, I wasn’t so keen on the face.  The ears also needed a little work.  So onto demo number 2!

This little guy turned out a little more square than I anticipated.  I also tested out a button nose instead of felt.  I like the button, but the placement needed a little tweaking as well.  I also went ahead and added the tail.

I wasn’t wanting to add a mouth, but I decided I might as well to give them each a little more character.  I made a solid drawn out pattern that wasn’t just me estimating from my sketch what size to make things, and started in on number 3.  Now demo number 3, which is probably the closest to the idea I have.

I really like this little guy! I also tested out his tail which, made me a little crazy but turned out great.

Friendship goals.

I also made another little guy, the last one I hadn’t made yet, the hamster!

They’re both adorable, but both have some things I’d want to tweak. I might round off the head a little more. I’ll update later (probably tomorrow or Friday!) With hopefully the final versions of all three. I’ll have a little variety of each animal, bunny, hamster and cat, they’ll have different colored patches and maybe different tail, and perhaps some little toy accessory? We’ll see.  They’ll be available in my shop as soon as I get probably 5 of each animal done.

What do you guys think?  Do you like the three animals I picked?  Remember…I can’t do a dog because Al is afraid of dogs! 😉  Let me know what you think!
