A Custom Order

Sometimes I get unusual requests. I'm an unusual gal, what can I say? But this one was pretty off kilter for what I normally do. If you've seen my plush, you know it's pretty much creepy. A little cute, but mostly creepy. So I get a convo from a gal who'd like me to do a squirrel wedding cake topper. Yep. Squirrels. She saw one of my plush squirrels on craftster and wanted to know if I'd do a wedding cake topper. Well, I'm always up for a challenge so I said 'sure'!

I'm doing 2 squirrels in chocolate brown felt with feather tails ('cause feathers are more light weight than faux fur!). One will have a bow tie, and one will have a wee veil! They'll both measue around 4.5 inches tall.

Here's Mr. Squirrel, without his bowtie:



Working on his lovely bride next and I'll of course post pics of the completed couple! But doesn't Mr. Squirrel look quite dapper?

That is just adorable! Does it have a wire armature or is he shaped soley by how the pieces were cut and stitched together?

Such a cutie!
Can't wait to see it finished.
Rustic wedding, perhaps?
I am trying to figure out what theme
requires squirrels as the cake topper!
