Dragon, Tiger, Cow

Dragon, Tiger, Cow

 

I finally finished the 3 dolls that my friend commissioned me to make!  Each will be gifted this Christmas to a niece or nephew, and each represents the Asian Zodiac animal for his/her birth year.  What a neat idea, right?  I hope the kiddos like them!  I’ve always wanted to make all the Zodiac animals so this was a good motivator to get me going on this project.  I don’t foresee myself finishing all 12 animals anytime in the near future, but I think I’ve got a pretty good start already.  Let’s see, the 12 animals are the Rat, Cow, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

My plan is to eventually make new Zodiac versions of each animal.   In the meantime, I can use existing dolls to represent the animals…  ie. Mochi or Wasabi for Year of the Rabbit would work nicely!    I’ve got a long way to go to make all the signs.   No worries though!  As long as I’ve got the animal done for the current year, I’m happy.  Which animal sign are you?  I’m a Cow (ok, that doesn’t sound so nice) and my husband is a Tiger.  According to the horoscope, I am supposedly hard working and persistent.  Hmmm I’m not sure if that’s completely accurate!  My tiger husband is supposedly confidant, courageous, and dynamic. That’s probably true.  But I’m not really one to be superstitious!! 🙂

    I absolutely love your little animals. Especially the zodiacs! I was drawn here from pinterest with the picture of the snake. My granddaughter has asked me to make her one & I fell in love with yours. It said free pattern, but I can not find it anywhere. Is it still free? Would LOVE to get it!

      On my main page, there is a little tab at the top that says Free patterns! You should be able to find the snake pattern there! Have fun!
