They safety eyes came in for my latest Loch Ness Monster, so I snapped them on, finished the belly and stuffed her up!She just needs horns and flippers which I hope to do this week!
As mentioned before, the body is knit with our Fat Cat in Kaia - left over from baby Kaia's Helena. For the belly, I doubled some Fluffy Cat (in Pink Pearl) left over from my Artemis. It made a nice soft and shiny underbelly for my Nessie.
A note about the eyes. I've had a heck of a time finding safety eyes. I don't know about where you live, but around here all we have is Michael's the (craptacular) Arts and Craft Superstore. They used to be great, but now they don't carry half of the craft supplies they use to. It stinks. And there are very few independent craft and hobby shops left - and most of the ones around here carry mostly model trains and cars - no crafting supplies at all.
But if you're looking - check out Etsy. I got mine from 6060, she has a great selection (and noses too!) I got them really quick and I thought the prices were quite reasonable.
