GIR - 117 of 365

Wow, I've been a bit behind. But that's mostly because of two projects I've been working on that have taken a looong time.
And I've finally finished one!


This is GIR from a 2000's cartoon "Invader Zim." An evil alien's robot minion who didn't turn out as expected. To blend in on Earth, he puts on this 'realistic' dog costume.

GIR was very easy to make, just took a long time - about 2 hours a day for almost 2 weeks.
I found an image online I like, printed it on transfer paper, and ironed it on muslin. Then, using invisible thread, hand-stitched seed beads on to match the image. The toughest part? - Finding a sharp needle small enough to fit through the beads!

Like it? GIR is for sale in my Etsy shop!
