OPHELIA – Mistakes
During my first go at Ophelia’s head, I make a rather drastic mistake and turned it into a football.
This was caused by two things. First that I cut the material so that it would stretch the long ways, not out the ways, causing the head to stretch out like a football. The second was that I made the widths of the pieces too thin. I had this problem when I was originally starting and fell into again with this doll.
I made ANOTHER mistake in the third image. Cutting the torso to stretch lengthwise again, I ended up with a very contorted torso. I had to cut all the limbs off and start over. I suppose I could have altered the design but it wasn’t the way I wanted so there was nothing for it.
I HAVE LEARNED TO MAKE SURE THE FABRIC STRETCHES THE RIGHT WAY!!!
