I thought I’d be able to finish this cat doll I’ve been working on by the end of this weekend, but I’ve hit a wall unfortunately. I don’t have any idea how to attach her arms, and I’m unsure how exactly I am going to hem her dress. So I just gotta put her away for a day or two and let my brain mull over it.
I have decided she is a Unicorn Cat Princess and that she is descended from unicorns. Just today, I was thinking about how I was going to make her unicorn horn, and I decided the best course of action would be to hit the local thrift store and see if I could track down a stuffed animal that already has a unicorn horn I could use. I kept envisioning using one that looks similar to the one on that Beanie Baby, Mystic.
When I went to the thrift store, I had absolutely no inkling that I would literally find Mystic, but there she was! I was shocked! It was like finding a needle in a haystack. Just right there on the shelf, I found the exact Beanie Baby and unicorn horn I had in mind.
I felt pretty bad to maim her and take her horn, but I tried to remove it as humanely as possible so she could still live on as a Beanie Baby. Now she’s just a white horse, and that’s fine.
All that remains with this doll now is hemming her dress, attaching her arms, and sewing on a few white beads onto her arms. (I’m going to use the same beads on her arms as I did her forehead.). Hopefully I can make it work.
