I have been working for months on how to make these shaped "pods". And they are starting to come together. These are about 3.5 feet tall, painted and dyed fabric and pellon, double needle stitched to make the bark pattern and shaped (multiple times) to get them to look natural and interesting from inside and out. I think they are going to be okay. I am mindful of how some projects just need a lot of time in my head trying and discarding ways to go.
