~ Lobo ~

17 January 2006

Lobo was done a long time ago… maybe two months ago? but he was tail-less for that whole two months. the reason him being tail-less was that i lost interest working on him… i sorta made a mistake.

Lobo is a dog that can’t stand on his four feet. his head is too heavy compared to his body, that he keeps falling forward no matter what you do. i should’ve put weighing pellets on his feet to keep him from falling forward. but i have never found pellets that small enough for his size… poor Lobo :(

it was my first time working on dogs. as usual, i worked without patterns… and boy, i couldn’t count how many times i re-did his snout. it was too big, then too small, then too long or crooked… it was fun, though, until i realized that he couldn’t stand up.

but i think he still looks cute :)

Aww! He’s so cute! Maybe you could glue him to a base, like a piece of wood? On second thought, that would be silly. But I think he’s especially adorable despite being top heavy!

thank you. i thought of having him sewn to a piece of cloth or something as well, but decided against it. now, he just need one of his farm friends to support his head, hee hee.

yeah, i think i’ll make another one with different ears, as soon as i have more yarn coloros. i don’t really wanna make them in the same color.

lobo is soooo darn cute!!!!!! how did you do this without pattern?

thanks, ka. actually, all but two of the farm members are done without pattern. so, i guess i’m just used to it… or it’s just the way i work. i get bored following patterns. hehe.
