Bambi Cape: Part 1

June 22, 2011


A sweet Bambi themed pixie hood cape for a 3 year old is the brief for my latest creation.  As it will be quite detailed I thought I would share my creative process with you as I finish each little character.

My plan is to have Bambi, Thumper and Flower the skunk frolicking amongst a field of wildflowers.  The exterior of the cape will be a gorgeous soft pinky apricot velvet fabric and the lining in a strawberry print.

Today's effort involved Flower the skunk.  I fashioned him from black and white felt and I hand embroidered his eye, limb, and paw details with embroidery floss.

I am quietly pleased with how well the eye detailing looks. The eyes are always the trickiest to get perfect.

Looking forward to sharing Thumper with you soon.
