Two Face and Dee Cap

I made two cute softies last night. Both original, well one is sorta original, you will see.

First I have a turtle. His name is Dee Cap, because his neck is so skinny I had to almost cut his head off to get polyfill in there. If you make any animals plan them so they don't have any super skinny bits. The legs and tail were not picnic either. In the end I think he's stinking cute and Ethan loves him. (he's for Ethan)

Next is a tooth. See now, I have the book Softies which I HIGHLY recomend. There are actual patterns in the back for all the projects. And a pocket thing to hold them all in. There is a tooth on the cover see? And Stephen thought that was super darling and wanted a tooth. But the tooth appears to be super hard, it's a molar type tooth, four little feet things, dent in the top, and so on. It scares me. So instead I googled "tooth" then clicked on where it gives you images. I found this, and used it as a template for this tooth.

I call him Two Face because, see he has two faces. He's happy on one side (and featured Bare Escentuals blush) and he's sad on the other side. He's also a hit, Stephen loves him.

In other news, this scrap of red felt made a great background for these pics! I am officially in the market for a large piece of black and a large piece of white. For all my photos. I rekon I'll fashion myself a box and everything. Sigh.
