So this marks a new step in the alterations of the Teenie Beanie Babies. For the first time I cut up one for parts for another. I had several of Erin the Irish bear and he had a good green color. I cut off both legs and here you can see how I did the foot. I am now working on the left foot. I loved how the clear fringe beads made toenails! I have hands I could do but am thinking that may be too much happening right under the mouth and draw attention away from it. This animal seems very green! Would love to try it again with yellow or white. I had planned to make big bat-like wings but think I will stay with the fin of the seahorse as small wings that are closed. The eye shows up better here than I thought it would. Good news.
