Bear Pillow Project Box Work in Progress



Last night, I drew the bear pillow template on poster board. Next, I’ll cut him out and trace him to see how the the shape looks. If all is well, I’ll draw a second template that will include the seam allowance. If his shape is not right, I'll make some changes and try again.



I got some more supplies in today: tools for carving linoleum, bottles to divide the ink for each project box, polyfil to stuff the pillows, and thread.  Linoleum is a material similar to rubber.  It’s thicker than what a linoleum floor looks like and softer.  It can be carved or cut easily to make shapes that can then be inked and printed. Once I get the ink in, I'll fill one of the bottles to see if it holds enough ink to complete the project. I'll do the same with the polyester stuffing and thread: measure how much is needed per pillow. This way I'll make sure to include more than enough materials in each box.



I hope you are enjoying your day. Let me know if you have any questions about the process or the Project Box along the way and I'd be happy to help. Thanks for reading!
