a Fake Fur Crocodile

Free form sewing the ridges, remembering to pivot in two steps at every corner:

Only I made the mistake though of sewing with the Wrong Sides together. I had to unpick all this.

Much better, sewn with the patterned sides outside and then turned:

Those back paws look awkward though. They’ll have to go.

Two tips when sewing with fake fur:

  1. don’t pivot in one step at sharp corners, pivot in two. It makes turning easier and corners become more crisp.
  2. after turning rub the seam with something (end of scissors, a nail) to free up the hairs.

Here’s the turned seam with one half treated so the fur is free and one how it looks fresh of the machine:

Handsewing on its paws and its felt teeth. The front paws are little pouches a well, they can hold things.
