Polymer Clay ideas for beginners (FOXIE:week TWO)
Here is tutorial three : Making the hands and feet
Here is tutorial four : Colouring
Now you are ready to make your little garments :
Of course the fabric choices can be great fun and part of your creative enjoyment. My search found some lovely red cloth in my box of stretchy fabrics and I chose this because it is a great rich colour for the little character.
After drawing out patterns for cutting and making several suits I found the finished shape I was looking for. You can download the final patterns HERE :
Cut and sew your suit and little arm and leg tubes.
Sew the patterns with a fairly small seam allowance. If you find this is hard for you add a bit on to the patterns to allow yourself more room.
Remember to trim the corners and cut the curves so that the patterns stretch properly once they are turned. The tubes are thin so work carefully not to rip the fabric as you turn them.
