It took me days, but I finally finished this little guy. He is approximately 12 inches, a little bit longer than I was hoping for, but that is how it goes sometimes. I only found one decent felted image of a great white shark, and it is awesome! Although this is nowhere like that, I think I did OK considering I just looked at photos of great white sharks and used my imagination. The only armature here is in the tail. Everything else I felted on my own. Though I think I may use an armature next time.
So, why a great white shark? Although bunnies and mice are really cute, I really like sharks and you don’t see too many of those. I decided I will be making a top 5 endangered sharks mobile. Just for fun, and a challenge. Besides, it also fits in with the scuba diver in me.
I am still in-between contracts and am a bit restricted as I broke my fifth metatarsal in my right foot over the weekend.
This is my new walking shoe for the time being. I can hobble around, but no walking the dogs or anything like that. I missed the last step coming down the stairs. It happens and it could be worse. My husband did the same a few weeks ago, but luckily he was ok. We just need to be more careful as we mature. So, I have plenty of time to make this shark mobile.
