I finished the farm dog today as well as the small goose. The dog has a bit of the same expression that Simba gets when he hears the word "walk". I would have liked to make it just like Simba but I don't have any nice blonde fabric on hand. Simba has legs that are a bit longer than this dog. His tongue and tail are not pieced in so they look quite realistic. I make a lined piece, turn it rightside out and sew it into a seam. I really like the tongue done that way.
It's funny that no matter how I plan these animals, they turn out the way they want. Each one has a different expression even if I use the same method as in the two geese.
I have a cat ready to start but I'd like to find some fabric that looks a bit like a gray tabby cat. We'll see.
