Bare Feet

The Bear’s feet were a struggle.

I only kept the ones with promise.

Until I realized that I was going about it the wrong way. I want a round, sticky-out, foot-like foot, so I put all my efforts into rounded toes (without putting a seam along the top). After a few days of frustration, I looked at my sketch again

and realized what I really wanted was a heel.

You just turn it like on a sock. A toe up sock. Which caused another set of design challenges such as how to turn a toe up heel without wrapping or holes or angst. But I think I’ve got it.

Fat rounded feet.

I only wish I saw this video (Priscilla Wild’s technique – it’s basically what I came up with) before I spent several hours reinventing the wheel.

I mean reinventing the ‘heel.’
