Tweedle Dee

Tweedle Dee

This is the first half of my toy for the plushteam fairy tale project. It's Tweedle Dee from "Through the looking glass" - not quite Alice in Wonderland but very close!

Although not expecting to - I've learnt a few things about myself while working on this task - firstly, although I aspire to be, I'm not actually very democratic. You see I did do a poll to see what people thought I should make for this task. The Cheshire cat was the overwhelmingly popular choice - suggested by many including the very styling Ninaribena of Canberra's got style fame.

But you see I've already made cats before and I just wanted to make something I unilaterally decided to make Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum!

The other thing is that I'm getting a bit more skilled at this toy making caper - I've managed to come up with two new toys this weekend and while they aren't complex or flash they did turn out pretty much how I'd hope they would which is a first! No sad calico corpses to stash in the back of my cupboard this time!

I think if I made more Tweedles they'd definitely get collars, braces and some hair but for now they good to go.

......Anyway hope you're having a great weekend
