while in joann's looking for matching thread, i happened upon the "DISCOUNT CLEARANCE MUST GO 90% OFF" table. after surpassing the sheer curtainesque fabrics and the kitschy polarfleece, i discovered faux furs and boiled wools in bright garish colors. while having a yard of each cut, i spotted behind the counter, what appeared to be an imitation sheepskin remnant. it turned out to be softer than kitten fluff and this site it inspired me to make my own version of a yeti. which turned out cute in the version where i forgot seam allowances and bear-ish in the second attempt.
i also made a monster shaped pattern that eventually turned into something resembling a green wolf. so i added a furry little tail which frank didnt enjoy so much.
