This morning I have begun construction of my rooster. I like to make the entire body first since most of him is dark (black actually). Of course black is never just black. I choose a fabric that actually is of pine needles and cones but when cut up It takes on a feather like quality.
I like to leave a little of the darker feather color peaking out just for contrast and depth. This is all done on my teflon sheet.
Now I am off to my Mom's to help her out with a few things. Hopefully I will get a little more finished today.
