Miss Piggy work in progress

I started building Piggy, but I am not doing it the traditional way. For those of you that do not know; she is usually carved out of clay, then a mold is made, then cast then head, then flock the foam. I have done some mold making and casting in the past (for Howie the wolf and other projects) but I am not fond of it. So I decided to make a patter for her and cut her out of 1/2 foam and antron fleece.

She's not perfect but considering the method I am using to construct her I am extremely happy with the results so far.

This is the foam head before the hours of stitching the fleece pieces together.



This is after the sewing. it still need to be smoothed out a bit. and maybe shaved.
