A Female Deer

Doe, a Deer
Doe, felt, 3 1/2″ tall

I was planning on making this a fawn but the idea of sewing spots on something so tiny was too daunting. Overall, though, I think it turned out pretty well, and I’d say my pattern was better than I’d expected!

When I was a kid I subscribed to a teddy bear magazine, but not, like, Toys’R’Us teddy bears, more like artist bears. Yes, I’m aware of how dorky that is. Anyway there was one bear artist whose work was frequently featured who made teeny-tiny miniature bears and I remember reading that she hand-sewed 32 stitches per inch. I think on this deer I got pretty close to that.
