Prototyping something new, I was aiming for funky, retro lion and ended up with a wistful cat in a shower cap!
Hey-ho, that's what prototyping is for, I guess. The main mistake here was to speed ahead, ignoring a seam allowance. I love to draw up new ideas, but it's easy to forget to add an extra quarter of an inch and end up with a skinny, slightly distorted shape. So that's how a proud, flowing mane ends up as a shower cap.
