I digress. The above picture is what I am working from and also it was drawn out by the same artist, Bill, who did Go Dog Go. He drew me a full size pattern which makes it much easier. Will use a combination of the above picture and
this one. Using batiks so that I can do raw edge applique. Some of my batiks I am not too happy with but overall, I think it will be fine. I had envisioned something different for the sky but after searching through my stash and the three sources of fabrics here in town this is the best I can do. I do love it with the browns.
I reduced the size of the bear that Bill had drawn. Will be able to tell more as I get more pieces laid out. The little windows, doors and steps will make a big difference. Should I put some clouds in the sky? I guess you just keep cutting and trying and it will fall in place. At first I was kind of leary of this, but I am actually excited about it now.
